Ludvig Daae is a Norwegian dancer and choreographer with an interest in entertainment and popular culture.

Ludvig has worked with artists such as Deborah Hay, Company Thor and Mårten Spångberg among others, when not creating his own work. Joanna Nordahl is a Swedish/Brazilian film director and artist. Her work is characterised by a passion for visualising the individual story, political themes and exploring musicality and choreography through film. Joanna has presented her film work at various platforms and festivals.

With Hyperfruit they investigate the subject of how we communicate online could be used as a structure for a dance performance. Joanna and Ludvig are both freelancing artists, meaning a life style where they are constantly traveling. Both Ludvig and Joanna have experience with long distance relationships, where the internet becomes a necessary evil. This is something that they are used to, as children of their time. What happens when our way of experiencing information on the internet is used as dramaturgy for a performance? When conventional connections and causalities such as “beginning, middle, end” or “1, 2, 3” are exchangeable to for example “1, 2, dog, Beyoncé”?
