Berstad/Helgebostad/Wigdel (NO) – Soil Girl

The performance is inspired by Maria Tryti Vennerød ‘s poem Jordjenta (Soil Girl) and is about longing for the tangible, for something real. The creators of this piece, the three dancers and choreographers Ingeleiv Berstad, Kristin Helgebostad and Ida Wigdel wonder about what they have in common with the characters in Vennerød ‘s poem. Secret rooms and the dark sides of the human mind are perhaps as normal as death.

It’s all gonna rot

It’s all gonna – yes, waste away

There’s something deeply unsound about not

accepting that

Berstad/Helgebostad/Wigdel has been defined as a powerful group with a strong artistic signature. The characteristics of the trio’s work are visually strong concepts, intense outbursts and the withdrawal of energies, and a playful and experimental attitude towards performance art and dance. This up-and-coming trio creates performance art in dialogue with contemporary drama and dramatists.
