How can we understand technology as something that is still active in our bodies, even when all technical devices have been turned off? How does it affect the plasticity of our brain to be inhabited by recent and future technologies? Moving in Concert imagines a universe where humans, technologies, and natural materials coexist and evokes a mesmerizing landscape produced by abstract movement, sculptures of light, and intense sensations of color.

On April 5 and 6, 2022, you can experience to come (extended) from 2017 – a performance with 15 dancers exploring the sexualization of the public sphere, and how it affects us to be visually bombarded by intimate body parts and fluids. The following two days, April 7 and 8, 2022, Moving in Concert from 2019 is presented, and thus 9 dancers’ study of how technology models our brains and haunts our bodies long after the power has been switched off. A unique opportunity to be double-impressed by the gifted and courageous Mette Ingvartsen.
