What does “dancing to music” really mean? And how do you create music for dance? In this duet, Ingrid Berger Myhre and Lasse Passage playfully examine the relationships between dance and music, using scores as tools to uphold structure over skill, method over indulgence. The title of their duet alludes to the contrast between the wet and the dry: Panflutes, on the one hand, are playful and passionate, Paperwork, on the other, refers to notation and sounds bureaucratic. The tensions between these states play well with tired conventions in the famous choreographer-composer constellation. With both tools at hand, Ingrid and Lasse invent games that re-negotiate their rule.
Ingrid Berger Myhre is a choreographer and performer currently based in Brussels. She recently finished the ‘research studios’ at P.A.R.T.S and holds an MA in Choreography; Research and Performance from The Choreographic Centre in Montpellier. She is associated choreographer at Dansateliers Rotterdam.
Composer and recording artist Lasse Passage started studying composition at Griegakademiet in Bergen and went on to complete a BA in Sonology from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague. His work is coloured by his background from the electroacoustics, his work as a songwriter – and the symbiosis of these influences.
