Mette Ingvartsen
to come (extended)

We are constantly surrounded by images of sexual bodies. All kinds of media expose the intimate and the erogenous. Flesh, fluids, skin, tits, and asses don’t belong to late hours in a dark joint, but to our daily life impressions. to come (extended) explores indistinctions between private and public space re. sexual representation, and the fact that it is no longer an option to switch off the stimulation of our bodily desires. Pleasure has become a must. A performance for 15 dancers exploring the sexualization of the public sphere, and how it affects us to be visually bombarded by intimate body parts and fluids.

Mette Ingvartsen’s name is bent in neon on the international stage. The Danish star choreographer now returns home to show two of her latest works. World-class dance presented at Republiqué in collaboration between Dansehallerne and Østerbro Teater.

On April 5 and 6, you can experience to come (extended) from 2017. The following two days, April 7 and 8, 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.

Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer. Characterised by hybridity, her work engages in extending choreographic practices by combining dance and movement with other domains such as visual arts, technology, language, and theory. Mette Ingvartsen holds a Ph.D. in choreography from UNIARTS / Lund University in Sweden; prior to that, she graduated from the performing arts school P.A.R.T.S in Brussels. She established her company in 2003; since then her work has been shown throughout Europe as well as in the U.S, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan, and Australia. She has been an artist–in–residence at the Kaaitheater in Brussels, Volksbühne in Berlin, and been associated with the APAP network.
