What kind of conventions define the way one moves through a museum? Ingrid started out studying modern dance at Amsterdam School of the Arts (NL), and worked as a freelance dancer in the independent scene in the Netherlands and abroad for several years before pursuing her interest in choreography. Since her master studies, Ingrid has developed her work as associate artist at Dansateliers Rotterdam. She has made commissioned pieces for Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Oslo National Academy of the Arts and Conny Janssen Danst’s talent development programme in collaboration with Dansateliers Danslokaal.
Language and semiotics are central elements to Ingrid’s practice. She is motivated by questions around how we read and understand dance, especially in the context of theatre. Her relativizing take on ‘dance’ as we know it results in unpretentious and humorous performances.
Her solo BLANKS (2017) and the duet PANFLUTES AND PAPERWORK (2019), a collaboration with Lasse Passage, introduced her work to international audiences. Both works were selected for Aerowaves, and have toured a number of venues in Europe and in Norway. In her upcoming production IN OTHER WORDS (2021), she continues to play with the capacities and shortcomings of language – using it as a scaffold for dance as a poetic expression.
Ingrid’s work is supported by Advancing Performing Arts Project (apap) – FEMINIST FUTURES – a project co-founded by the Creative Europe Program of the European Union, Caravan Production (BE) and Dansateliers (NL).
