Øyvind Jørgensen Productions 92-95 Productions 96-02 Productions 04-05  Workshop  


Choreographer and dancer Øyvind Jørgensen concentrates
on an expressive and dynamic approach to dance.

He has long experience as a dancer and choreographer and has been a central part of the modernist/experimental dance scene in Norway.
He is also an experienced teacher and has been awarded the Norwegian Government’s three year work scholarship to develop his work. Today he runs his own production company Ø. J. Productions, and works as a freelance choreographer.

He is currently touring his successful solo performance Songs Of The Last Hour, and his latest work - a full length piece for three performers, Manøvrering I Kupert Landskap (Manoeuvring in a rolling landscape).

His main sources of influence have been his studies at the Martha Graham School, as a performer with the Martha Graham Ensemble, Butoh and European contemporary dance. Through a synthesis of these different experiences and techniques Jørgensen has developed a strong personal form of expression.

The solo piece Songs Of The Last Hour-97 marked a breakthrough in his work as an independent choreographer. With Manøvrering I Kupert Landskap 99 - with specially composed music by Petter Wiik, Øyvind Jørgensen has become one of Norway's leading choreographers.
