SpoilerThe powerful trio Berstad/Helgebostad/Wigdel explores outer and inner noise in a playful and intuitive way where no idea is too hysterical, vulgar, inflammatory or childish to be explored
Friday December 14th
17:30 – 18:30
Kassinn at the National Theatre, Lindargata 7
Spoiler is the latest and highly acclaimed production of the powerful, Norwegian trio Berstad/Helgebostad/Wigdel, and is now touring nationally and internationally. With unconditional intensity and physical affection, Berstad/Helgebostad/Wigdel dedicate themselves to the night sides and secret rooms of human beings.
With an interest in unpolished rawness they create maximum excitement out of the smallest impuls, trying too little and too hard at the same time. They have a love for how small groups can create fragile belongings that can carry the care for each other but at the same time be noisy and unstable. In Spoiler the three dangerous douchebags explore outer and inner noise and enter into an unknown universe that seeks the distorted, the dark and the playful. They make a world with countless layers of unexplored mechanisms and conditions.
Noise is the vibrating energy, the uncontrollable, dissonant forces accumulating in and around us.
Ida Wigdel, Ingeleiv Berstad and Kristin Helgebostad are all choreographers and dancers based in Oslo. Together they have cultivated a strong artistic mutual trust. This trust has given them courage to continue developing a playful and intuitive way of working where no idea is too hysterical, vulgar, inflammatory or childish to be explored. In 2013 they made their first production, Soil Girl, that has been noticed both nationally and internationally and played at festivals such as ImpulsTanz, Nordwind, Ice Hot, Spring Forward, Motel Mozaique and Side Step Helsinki etc. They were also Aerowaves Priority Company in 2015.
