Intakt is a collaborative contemporary dance company between Lise Damsgård, Sofie Westvik and Mathilde Caeyers; three dancers from Tromsø, Norway who started their training together as teenagers. After separating to attend three different dance schools, we have been reunited to collaborate on new, exciting creative 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 and exciting cultural life.

The ensemble consists of three dancers who started their training together at Tromsø Kulturskole and Kongsbakken Vgs. They later attended a one year dance intensive at Trøndertun, before separating to achieve three different Bachelor Degrees in Dance.

The company is a platform to collaborate with each other as both performers and choreographers, developing contemporary dance, while growing as artist.

Mathilde Caeyers graduated from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts with a Bachelor Honours Degree in Dance. As a dancer, she is trained in a broad variety of dance techniques, as well as singing, acting, and aerial silks.
