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

I Panflutes and Paperwork undersøker Ingrid Berger Myhre og Lasse Passage på upretensiøst vis forholdet mellom dans og musikk. Med utgangspunkt i partiturer legger de vekt på delt interesse for struktur og metode, heller enn talent og virtuositet. Tittelen til duetten hinter til kontrasten mellom det våte og det tørre; det inderlige og det strukturelle, det lekne og det byråkratiske. Spenningen mellom disse tilstandene spiller tilbake på den velkjente koreograf-komponist-relasjonen og dens gjentatte konvensjoner. Med verktøy fra begges leire oppfinner Ingrid og Lasse nye sammentreff som endrer spillereglene.

Ingrid Berger Myhre is a choreographer and performer currently based in Brussels. She holds an MA in Choreography; Research and Performance from The Choreographic Centre in Montpellier and is associated choreographer at Dansateliers Rotterdam, the house co-producing her works since 2014. 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.

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 problematize the conventional relationships between dance and music. They experiment with using scores as tools to uphold collective structure over individual skills. They both work with a lighthearted approach to composition and share affinities in regards to subtle humour. The title alludes to the contrast between the “wet and the dry”: Panflutes, on the one hand suggests the playful and passionate; paperwork, on the other, refers to notation and the bureaucratic. The performance explores the tensions between these peripheries to invent new takes on old conventions regarding the (in)famous choreographer-composer constellation. Or simply the negotiations between two people.
