What does “dancing to music” really mean? And how do you create music for dance? In this duet, Ingrid Berger Myhre and Lasse Passage playfully examine the relationships between dance and music, using scores as tools to uphold structure over skill, method over indulgence. The title of their duet alludes to the contrast between the wet and the dry: Panflutes, on the one hand, are playful and passionate, Paperwork, on the other, refers to notation and sounds bureaucratic. The tensions between these states play well with tired conventions in the famous choreographer-composer constellation. With both tools at hand, Ingrid and Lasse invent games that re-negotiate their rule.

Panflutes and Paperwork is selected as an Aerowaves Twenty20 performance.
Panflutes and Paperwork is part of Dansenett Norge autumn 2020.
