Ingvild Langgård, Thora Dolven Balke and Ingri Midgard Fiksdal took part in Performancefestivalen 2007 at Kunstbanken Hedmark Arts Centre with their work Reversed I Wanna Be Loved By You, a surprising interpretation of the song made known by Marilyn Monroe. The text presents a wish to be loved, whatever the price. In the performance the song is performed backwards, as a negation of the original meaning. The droning vocals invoke the dancer’s movements in the form of a striptease in reverse. The performances are short, and were repeated several times during Performancefestivalen 2007 at Kunstbanken Hedmark Arts Centre.

Thora Dolven Balke and Ingvild Langgård graduated from the Bergen Arts Academy in 2007. Ingri Midgard Fiksdal completed her masters degree in choreography at the Oslo Arts Academy / State Ballet Academy in 2006.
