The language and semiotics are central elements in the work of Ingrid Berger Myhre, a choreographer and dancer associated with Dansateliers in Rotterdam. It is, therefore, no coincidence that Blanks presents itself as a reflection of the conditions through which we attend a dance show.
Myhre, here engaged in a solo, constructs her performance as a set of sub-texts, pretexts and contexts that emphasise how the verbal description of a situation can alter the actual case itself. Blanks invites us to reflect upon the language of dance and on how the spectator can manipulate the scene through his or her perceptions and imagination. The result is a daydream that is sweet and full of possibilities.
