Ingrid, Nicola and Ida in a line on a white an grey stage. Their hands are twisting, covering their faces.


Spelling Spectacle is a game where 3 performers navigate a meticulously devised, yet playful, plan.

With each move, they peek into the immediate future, attempting to avoid the pitfalls of individual whims and stringent collectivism. By being loyal to the game rules, they risk steering into walls, hopelessly going in circles, missing their marks. By being loyal to their individual ideas, they risk sabotaging the collective effort. This productive dilemma drives the work forward.

The goal is to build the piece in real-time. Everything becomes material, as movement trajectories are woven thanks to coincidence and careful considerations. And as the map is drawn, the mysteries unfold.

Every next frame is the result of a previous stepping stone. 

Each stone carries the baggage of the ones before. 

In con-sequence, they spell out both the obvious and the magical:

The next step, the next room, the next door- continuously leaving one space to make another appear.

  • “The choreographer Myhre, part of the trio, looks at ways of translating into action how a spectacle is constructed and how its components makes up a coherent whole. It’s not really dance, nor mime. Gestures and positions solely produce signifiers without signified, even implicitely."

  • "The humorous ideas and incongruous transitions in this performance stimulate the imagination and enhance observational skills. They also elicit a smile"
