METTE INGVARTSEN Constellation Mette Ingvarsten: to come (extended)

Buy your ticket


This creation is based on an earlier 2005 work by Ingvartsen for five dancers: to come. The choreographer wanted to reinterpret this piece to update the reflection on sexual politics, to reflect on the boundaries between private space and public space in relation to sexual representation. The play literally alters erotic orders, with a group of fifteen performers questioning the notion of individual sexual freedom by focusing on orgiastic relationships. The bodies of the performers merge into a collective formation making their surfaces indistinguishable from each other.

Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer. She began her training in 1999 in Amsterdam and continued in Brussels, where she graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in 2004. Her choreographic work stands out due to its hybrid character, which fuses dance with other disciplines, especially the visual arts, technology, and language. Between 2009 and 2012, The Artificial Nature Series (comprising the pieces Manual Focus (2003) and 50/50 (2004), developed a series on human/non-human relationships. By contrast, in her latest series, The Red Pieces: 69 positions (2014), 7 Pleasures (2015), to come (expanded) and 21 pornographies (2017), she focuses on nudity, sexuality and how the body has historically been a place of political struggles.
