Press coverage

Writer and date unknown, Aftenposten [Oslo]:
"Ingun Bjørnsgaard has become an exciting name among Nordic choreographers during the past three years, and she is continuously developing [...] The movement and stage patterns are so fascinating that one mostly doesn't care whether one understands the choreographer's thinking or not."

Writer and date unknown, Dagbladet [Oslo], rating the production worthy of five dice pips:
"In "Sleeping Beauty", which has recently won recognition in Stockholm and Bergen, she (Bjørnsgaard) leads us into an elegant, sophisticated, but also brutal and scary female universe."

Writer and date unknown, Klassekampen [Oslo]:
"It has been a long time since we have seen a more innovative and complete work here in Norway, and it may be a long time until the next."
