DANCE/CHOREOGRAPHY

HALLGRIM HANSEGÅRD

Dance and choreography

Hallgrim Hansegård (born 1980) is a Norwegian choreographer, dancer and entrepreneur, known for his brave and playful projects across physical, mental and cultural boarders. He has made the relatively unknown local dance tradition halling famous across the world through computer games and TV shows.

 

His works have been performed in more than 30 countries, been censured by the Catholic church in Italy, and has over 100 million views on YouTube. In 2006, he established FRIKAR, a dance company, which created new opportunities and work for dancers performing halling, break dance, capoeira and contemporary circus. In 2012 he established Frikar-Akademiet AS (the Frikar-Academy) to organize the pedagogical activities of FRIKAR. In 1999, Hansegård founded Fjelleik-prosjektet at Valdres high school, a project which still represents an important and engaging measure against the high drug use in the area. In 2016, he founded Toppidrett FRIKAR, at the same school, which is an option for the students to do elite sports during high school. In 2017, he founded the talent development program FRIKAR X in collaboration with Talent Norge, which follows ten professional and semi-professional genre-independent dance artists over three years. 

Hansegård also takes an interest in refugees, and works against racism through art projects and feature articles in the newspaper Aftenposten.
