Ingun Bjørnsgaard is without question one of Norway’s leading vanguard choreographers of the past 20 years. Her career spans from the highly profiled inauguration of The Norwegian Opera & Ballet’s Stage 2 in 2008, to a range of choreography commissions for prominent European dance theatres. In her work with her own company (IBP) she has developed her dance-theatre language in a chamber format, made great advances in her research, and worked closely with dancers with strong personalities. Ingun Bjørnsgaard Prosjekt was established in 1992. With this company she has created 20 full-length choreographic works, touring throughout Norway and a variety of European venues and cities. In 2010, Ingun Bjørnsgaard received the Norwegian Critic Award for Largo, 15 years after having received this prestigious prize for her work “Sleeping Beauty”. 
Ingun Bjørnsgaard is the first ever to receive this award twice.


Ingun Bjørnsgaard Prosjekt Since its foundation in 1992, Ingun Bjørnsgaard Prosjekt has presented some
of the most remarkable productions in Norwegian contemporary dance. Ingun Bjørnsgaard’s style and
vocabulary derives from her close cooperation with her dancers. Their technical skill, areas of
specialization, personal expression, and creativity are vital resources in the development of the
choreography and dramaturgy of the work. Through such collaboration, the Ingun Bjørnsgaard Prosjekt
cultivates a genuine openness to the new and unexpected, the current, and the extravagant.
IBP has been guaranteed funding by the Norwegian Cultural Council until 2019.
