Varighet: ca. 60 min.
A sensory pop-poetic banger for dreaming and being.

BANGER is a collaboration between composer Ingvild Langgård and choreographer Magnus Myhr. They want to invite the audience into a physical and acoustic environment where pop-music is dissected and stretched to the max. They are searching for the mental and physical joy, comfort and satisfaction that music can provide and create a sensory pop-poetic banger for dreaming and being.


Ingvild Langgård (composer) and Magnus Myhr (choreographer) first met at Myhr's HEARTFELT (2020) and Langgård/Becker's SKELETON WOMAN (2020). Now two minor-tuned souls will try to tune, listen and dance themselves and the audience into some kind of major scale. BANGER is their first collaborative project. Magnus wants it to be like Bruce Springsteen's "Tougher than the rest", while Ingvild wants it to be more like Kate Bush's "Waking the witch".
