Christina Lindgren

Christina Lindgren (b.1968) is a scenographer and costume designer based in Oslo. She studied at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (MA) and Universität der Künste Berlin (BA).

She has designed costume and scenography in more than 40 stage performances of all genres. Most projects she has worked on are strongly multidisciplinary and process oriented. Many of the projects are experimental with a high risk for failure.

Christina has a special interest in music theatre/ new opera and works in close collaboration with composers and musicians: Maja Ratkje, Erik Dæhlin, Julian Skar, Atli Ingolfsson,Tony Blomdahl, Liv Kristin Holmberg, Amund Sjølie Sveen, Einar Nielsen and Silje Aker Johnsen. She has also worked in performances with music by Hindemith, Milhaud, Reimann, Nørgård and Kagel. Sound generating scenography and composed theatre are of her favourite interests.

She has initiated and produced several projects, including three performances for children 0-3 years. She initiated a project based on the poems of Gunvor Hofmo, which will include a large collection of recordings of people reading her poems and a 12 hour performance in 2015 with music, poems and shadow play given the dramaturgical shape of the church liturgy.

Together with the theatre critics Anette Therese Pettersen and the art theorist Boel Christensen-Scheel, she currently works on a larger publication on scenography and costume design. She was a curator for the Norwegian contribution in the National Section of the Prague Quadrennial 2011.
