About her work
Inga has a drive to cultivate collaborative environments. Working closely with Rósa Ómarsdóttir under the name Inga and Rósa, they created the award winning duet The Valley, the duet Wilhelm Scream which has toured widely in France, Belgium, Turkey and Iceland, and most recently Da Da Dans for The Icleandic Dance Company. Their work for the last years has focused on sound production and foley art in relation to the body and the uncanny experiences that arise from their collision. Their work seeks to find the friction between the symbolic and the sensorial; to embody the distance between seeing and being.
Inga also collaborates closely with Katie Vickers with whom she created Slogan For Modern Times. They are currently at work on We Will Have Had Darker Futures in collaboration with Rebecca Stillman. Their work together focuses on time in relation to anticipation and the slow moving hand of time.
As a performer/collaborator Inga has worked with Eleanor Bauer and composer Chris Pec in the contemporary musical, MEYOUCYCLE. She has danced for Salva Sanchis in his most recent works Islands and Radical Light and performed/collaborated with the contemporary music ensembles ICTUS and GAME (Ghent Advanced Master Ensemble) in their project Ballet Mekanique.
