The dancers involved in the project are some of the best in Norway. Their broad educational background and wide range of experience, from classical ballet to contemporary techniques, are prerequisites for Ingun Bjørnsgaard’s exceptional work and provide an open attitude towards movements, dramaturgy and design.
The continuity in the collaboration between Bjørnsgaard and her dancers has formed a working atmosphere sensitive to demanding choreographic ideas, theatrical extravaganza and technical precision. The personal expression and bodily representation of each dancer are important parts of the company, since the productions are largely the fruit of collaborative efforts between the choreographer and the dancers.
The company’s economy is based on public funds granted to autonomous stage art productions by the Arts Council Norway. In addition, IPB is financed through a diversity of funding bodies, including co-productions and co-operations.
