B i o g r a p h y

Janne-Camilla Lyster (b. 1981) studied at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, where she graduated with a BA in Contemporary Dance in 2006. She is a dancer, choreographer and author. 


She has published several collections of poetry, as well as writing literary scores for dance: poetic texts, written and structured to be read as dance and interpreted by dancers. The scores' poetic nature and stringent structure forms a series of curious, playful and contemplative performance pieces.

Her work is presented at theatres and venues including the Norwegian Opera & Ballet, Black Box Theatre, Dansens Hus, Det Norske Teatret, and tours internationally.


She presented her artistic result of the PhD project ChoreographicPoetry: Creating Literary Scores for Dance at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in September 2019.
