about

Intakt is a collaborative contemporary dance company between Lise Damsgård, Sofie Westvik and Mathilde Caeyers; three dancers from Tromsø, Norway who started their dance training together as teenagers. After separating to attend three different dance schools, they have reunited to collaborate on various projects.​ Intakt was established in 2018 in Tromsø, a vibrant city in the North of Norway.

The company  wishes to focus on its connection to the north, and contribute to its dynamic cultural life. Intakt was established with the purpose of taking part in the development of the professional dance scene in the North of Norway, and create productions of high technical and artistic quality. A long-term goal is to expand and become a regional dance company for contemporary dance representing the North of Norway both nationally and internationally.

Eksogen is the company's debut performance. The show aims to explore the potential for violence in each individual human body, through the philosophical lense of Carl Gustav Jung.

SMELT (Norwegian for melt) is about beautiful destuction. The process of melding is embodies through dance in a powerful and visceral experience for further reflection.
