Astrid Solberg

Astrid Solberg is a composer and performer from Oslo, Norway. Her compositions balance conceptually on the edges of performance art and instrumental theatre. In her performance practice she works both in collaboration with other artists, and with her own material through video work and on stage. Power structures and feminism in music and art is of great interest to Astrid, in addition to internet culture, mental health and dogs. Her recent work is focused around video, choreography and visual elements in different forms.  Her critical gaze on the art field and the tendencies in society is often presented through satire and humour. Astrid is currently an exchange student at Stuttgart University of Music and Performing Arts and will be finishing her Bachelor in Composition from the Norwegian Academy of Music in the autumn of this year. She's participating in Borealis Ung Komponist up until March 2022.
