As a choreographer and director Torgunn Wold Platzack collaborates closely with actors as well as dancers. The productions are developed out of stage images and improvisation, and often move across the intersections between different performative genres.

In addition to her own productions, Platzack has worked on assignments as a choreographer for Norrlandsoperan in Sweden, NISS (Nordic Institute of Stage and Studio), Gul Katt Produksjoner, Teater Tramp and Teater Grimsborken in Norway.

Platzack has had assignments as a dancer, storyteller and puppeteer, for productions including Hege Haagenrud's Morgenfuglen* (The Early Bird), she has been a dancer at Centre Dramatique National de St. Denis in Paris, and an actress and singer for Teater Joker's Rike Per* (Rich Per).

The recent years Torgunn Platzack also has created solo performances and duo performances in which she examines the meeting between dance and theatre clownery. Nord-Trøndelag Theatre's To på kloden* (Two on Earth) is a production recreating the character of the clown in our modern age, with Torgunn Platzack as a co-creating performer.
