In the playful duet Panflutes & Paperwork, choreographer Ingrid Berger Myhre and composer Lasse Passage research what we expect of the relation between dance and music and how these expectations can be broken.
What is indispensable in your work ?
Ingrid: Supportive colleagues. Games. Deadlines. Internal humour.
Lasse: To have a nap during the day. It’s the most productive way to recharge the body and mind. I always get a new idea or perspective on what I’m busy with after a nap.
What do you love to do after a day of hard work?
Ingrid: To go and have a cold beer at the local bar and speak to someone I don’t know about something I wouldn’t expect.
Lasse: As a composer I usually work in solitude, so after a long day of work I need to go have a drink and talk with someone – just to check in with the rest of the world and make sure that I still exsist.
What would you like to tell people (with your work)?
Ingrid: That no thing is only one thing.
Lasse: Never to doubt your silly sense of humor.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Ingrid: Puns. Competing in wordplay with my dad is a classic.
Lasse: Asking people for directions, even though I know where I’m going.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Ingrid: Still working with people I admire, who challenge my ideas about what choreography can do.
Lasse: Still living as an artist, but with a plan for my pensions.
