In other words

Is dan­ce a lan­gu­a­ge ? And if so, how does it speak ? This pie­ce explo­res the com­pa­ti­bi­li­ty bet­ween dan­ce and lan­gu­a­ge, using rhe­to­ric devi­ces as com­po­si­ti­o­nal tools. With the sta­ge as page, the cho­re­o­grap­hic wri­ting unfolds a phy­si­cal dis­cour­se with its own syn­tax, gram­mar and voca­bu­la­ry. But what con­di­ti­ons the­se dan­ce utteran­ces ? And what does it mean to read dan­ce ? In other words, if we are not see­king mea­ning, how do we sen­se the making of sen­se when wat­ching this dance ?

With wits, charm and sophis­ti­ca­ti­on Ingrid Berger Myhre’s rela­ti­vi­zing take on dan­ce” as we know it, comes together in unpre­ten­tious and humo­rous per­for­man­ces. In her new per­for­man­ce In other words, she con­ti­nues her play with the capa­ci­ties and short­co­mings of lan­gu­a­ge — using it as a scaf­fold for dan­ce as poe­tic expression.
