More about Ingri Midgard Fiksdal

With stage designer Signe Becker, Ingri Fiksdal won Norwegian Critics' Award for dance 2013/2014 for Hoods, Black Box Teater.

Anette Therese Pettersen said the following, among other things, on behalf of Norwegian Critics' Association during the award ceremony:

"Fiksdal and Becker both have made their marks in their respective fields, but in the projects they have made together - and particularly in Hoods - it has become increasingly difficult to see where the limits between stage design and choreography go.

Hoods is a kind of hybrid between installation and performance, in which the audience is clad in the same burqa-like colourful costumes as the performers. In addition, the rows of seating have been removed, so that performers and spectators are in a room without visible divides. Hoods is a meditative and evocative performance posing questions about what dance is - and at the same time it provides several suggestions. It is an immersive experience in which dance comes from within and outside at the same time."

The complete speech can be read (in Norwegian only) at the website of Norwegian Critics' Association.
