Norway

Hallgrim Hansegård is a choreographer dedicated to the art of moving. At the age of 30 his works were performed in 29 countries. His work has both been censored by the Catholic church of Italy and been named "best choreography" of the Eurovision Song Contest, which shows the dynamics of his expressions. Hallgrim has choreographed for tv, theatres, orchestras, wall dancers and performance arts, and he´s the founder of Frikar dance company. National Geographic described him as "wildly inventive" and NRK calls him a "new-thinking choreographer with a strong will of doing his own things". Hansgård is trained as a video artist in Italy and has shown animation arts at the Biennal of Venice and at Norwegian cinemas and festivals. He often has an archeological approach to innovation and has won the Norwegian Championships of traditional dance twice in a row. Parts of the last year he has spent in a Chinese kung fu temple exploring the non-verbal communication in traditional movement artists.

Hansegård has received the Norwegian government's grants for artists for his research on border crossing choreography. He is also writing a book on his project "8".
