zero visibility corp.
zero visibility corp. is one of the most acclaimed Norwegian contemporary dance companies. It is led by choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen. Since the international breakthrough in 2003 Ina Christel Johannesen and her company has thrilled audiences in 18 countries worldwide - from the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Front Centre in Toronto to the Cervantinos Festival in Mexico. Every piece is created in close collaboration with committed partners in Norway and abroad, and the works vary from duets to large scale productions.
Inas work is characterized by high energy in the physical movements merged with poetic and often theatrical elements. The sought-after choreographer has in addition to her own company zero visibility corp., created works for international companies such as Ballet de Monte Carlo, CCDC Hong Kong, and Cullberg Ballet.
Since 2009 zero visibility corp has received base funding from Arts Council Norway, which represents a great recognition for the company and choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen.
The base funding is of great importance for the company's artistic development and possibilities. Several projects and guest performances had not been possible without the basic funding. The company and ICJ have been able to realize bigger and more diverse projects, both in size of productions and touring.
As member of the audience we are thrown into crossroads between aesthetic extremes in physically explicit and powerful expressions. We are united in a belief in dance as an art form. It is perhaps in this insisting on the concrete and physically demanding choreography that zero visibility corp. place themselves in a theatrical dance tradition, creating their very own artistic profile. - Siren Leirvåg
