Glimmer in the Grey: A Preview of Ingri Fiksdal at the MCA Chicago | Newcity Stage
RECOMMENDED The Museum of Contemporary Art offers a temporary reprieve from the bleakness of February and a chance to enjoy the winter weather with the presentation of two performances, one indoor and one outdoor, by distinctive Oslo-based choreographer Ingri Fiksdal. Since the North American premiere of her work "Cosmic Body" at the MCA in 2016, Fiksdal has toured Scandinavia and Europe, collecting accolades and awards including a Natt&Dag Award, a Norwegian Critics' Association Dance Award and a Hedda Award nomination. During her upcoming engagement, Fiksdal intricately blends music, sound, light design, scenography, fashion and dance in complementary performances: "STATE" and "Diorama."

Co-created with sound artist Lasse Marhaug and avant-garde fashion designer Henrik
