INGRID OLTERMAN choreographer
Ingrid Olterman has been a professional
dancer and choreographer for more than 20 years. She was trained
at Balettakademien in Stockholm, and has also studied in Lyon
and Amsterdam and at the College of Dance in Stockholm. Between
1986 and 1997 Ingrid worked with the dance company TIGER where
she performed, choreographed and worked on the stage design.
Ingrid has choreographed for a number of different venues, site
specific performances and video works. Ingrid often collaborates
with other artists and art forms. She uses music specially composed
for each performance and this is often performed live.
In 1996 she performed her first solo.
Since 1999 Ingrid’s interest in creating
work for the younger audience has led to a large number of performances
where children and young adult’s own reflections and thoughts
are highly present. These performances are developed in a process
working directly with the children, dancers and musicians. What
is typical for this work is the mixture of warmth, humour and
musicality, as well as the reflection and inspiration to be
creative, that is awakened within the audience, both adult and
Ingrid is based in Stockholm but every year her work tours around
Ingrid Olterman teaches creative dance for children and adults
and Tai chi for adults.
