BERSTAD / HELGEBOSTAD / WIGDEL has been defined as a powerful group with a strong artistic signature. The characteristics of the trio’s work are visually strong concepts, intense outbursts and the withdrawal of energies, and a playful and experimental attitude towards performance art and dance. This up-and-coming trio creates performance art in dialogue with contemporary drama and dramatists.
The group consists of the performers and choreographers Ingeleiv Berstad, Kristin Helgebostad and Ida Wigdel. Berstad and Helgebostad started their collaboration through their MA in choreography at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, which they finished in the summer of 2012. Wigdel has performed in Ingun Bjørnsgaard Prosjekt, Zero Visibility Corp and is one of the choreographers in theline.no and Haagenschmagen.
