Ingri Midgard Fiksdal (1982) is a choreographer based in Oslo. In 2019 she finished a PhD in artistic research at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, with the project Affective Choreographies.
This research took shape as six performances and three books. Ingri´s work on affect has in recent years taken her into discourses on perspective and privilege. She is currently working on a numbers of projects addressing the intersection between the post-anthropocentric and the decolonial from a feminist perspective. Ingri is concerned with how practise and theory are entangled in her work in a way where neither is perceived as anterior to the other. From 2020, Ingri is an affiliated artistic researcher with the project CoFUTURES. Pathways to possible Presents led by Bodhisattva Chattopadhayay at the Unviersity of Oslo ( http://cofutures.org/home.html )
Ingri´s work has in recent years been performed at Kunstenfestival in Brussels, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Santarcangelo festival, Beijing Contemporary Dance Festival, Sommerszene in Salzburg, Reykjavik Art Museum, brut-Wien, Teatro di Roma, Harbourfront Centre Toronto, Contemporary Art Center Cincinnati, BUDA Kortrijk, Tanzhaus NRW in Dusseldorf and Steirischer Herbst Festival in Graz, alongside extensive touring in Norway.
From 2016 to 2020 Fiksdal is supported by apap-Performing Europe 2020 – a project co-funded by Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
Her work receives base funding from the Norwegian Arts Council.
