Kristin Ryg Helgebostad used to be a cheerleader for Frisk Asker Hockey. Cheers! therefore is a performance about cheerleading, a merciless distortion of a cheerleading show, almost unrecognizable but always cheery! Go go go!
At its core Cheers! is cheering! Cheering is an uncontrollable force that can strengthen or weaken but always ends with what it is about. Cheering is love and manipulation, either individually or collectively. The artists create a telepathic, collective field of consciousness where new, unsuspected forces and contexts can arise.
Together with carillonneur Laura Marie Rueslåtten, performers Marianne Kjærsund, Sigrid Kopperdal, Julie Moviken, Berglind Rafnsdottir and Charlott Utzig, costume designer Thale Kvam Olsen and sound designer Elisabeth Nilsson, Kristin Ryg Helgebostad returns to her roots - with all her cheerleading experience. Together they transform chants and cheers, acrobatics and pyramids. They are on the hunt for variegated ways to go up and down, their throws can be small and executed with caution, their chants can be whispered or wheezed, as long as they make something happen.
