Panflutes and Paperwork (process conversation)
1. December @ 19.00

After a 2 week residency period at RIMI/IMIR, the artists Ingrid Berger Myhre and Lasse Passage invite folks to a process conversation about their latest work, ‘Panflutes and Paperwork’, which is planned to revisit (RISK) in finished form in fall 2019. 

Panflutes and Paperwork is a collaboration between choreographer Ingrid Berger Myhre and composer Lasse Passage Nøsted. Myhre and Passage have worked together on several projects since 2015 and over time developed a critical dialogue around what ”creating music for dance” or ”dancing to music” is expected to be. The duet playfully problematizes the conventional relationship between dance and music by challenging the standardised idea of what they each have to live up to and what they together can produce. In their quest for assimilation without compromise, the work makes use of scores as a tool to define and prioritise collective structure above individual skills.

When the form is in place, everything within it can be pure feeling” – A.Schöenberg

The title alludes to the contrast between the dry and the “wet”: Panflutes, on the one hand suggests the playful, sensational and passionate. Paperwork on the other refers to notation, the formal and bureaucratic. The performance will explore the conversion between these two peripheries in what will offer a new take on old conventions regarding the infamous choreographer-composer-constellation. Myhre and Passage both work with a lighthearted approach to composition and share affinities in regards to subtle humour. Panflutes and Paperwork is in many ways their formalistic approach to expressivity.
