Skeleton Woman is a new performance by Signe Becker and Ingvild Langgård – a site specific work, part choir piece, part scenic performance – and a live sculpture with ritual and mythical aspects. Embodied by nine singers and dancers, the performance will take place in the midst of the audience in an intimate experience.

“We recollect a primordial power that collapses and resurrects again and again, and give life to a new possible femininity – one that may be frightening, powerful and raw.”

Becker/Langgård last visited Black Box teater with their concert installation NEW SKIN (2017). They also collaborated with choreographer Ingri Fiksdal for the performances Cosmic Body (2015), Night Tripper (2012) and The Orchard Ballads (2011).

Signe Becker is a freelance scenographer and artist. Skeleton Woman is part of Becker’s PhD studies at Oslo Academy of the Arts. Ingvild Langgård is a composer, musician and sound artist. Langgård composes and performs sound and music for stage, ensemble, film, as well as live performances and sound installations. She has released two albums under the name Phaedra.



“This artist duo is unstoppable to the extent that even technology should feel fearful.”
– Morgenbladet on New Skin
