performance - Season 14/15
Departing from the sexual utopia particular to the counterculture of the 60's, Mette Ingvartsen looks closely at our contemporary bodies, searching for cracks to penetrate our understandings of sexuality today. With the solo 69 positions she starts a new cycle of work entitled The Red Pieces. The series is a contemporary reflection on sexual practices and society.
In the early seventies Franz West created his first adaptives or portable sculptures. Using these sculptures, Ivo Dimchev created the solo I-on, followed by the group performance X-on, for which West made new, bigger adaptives. The bodies of the performers and the art objects enter into a unique relationship.
‘If cure is a choice, why not make it while sitting in the theatre? Why waste any more time on wanting to be ‘cultural’ when we could spend it on being ‘healthier’? In I-Cure Dimchev will be solving both your physical and psychological problems!
The new project by Hans Petter Dahl and Anna Sophia Bonnema is a study of rhythm and expression, a journey in which a live drummer fires up three performers. A celebration of life results in an enumeration that cuts right through everything, in the realisation that we have to take our leave. We are living in a time when there is ‘an epidemic of things’.
The internet is a source of inspiration for Barbara Matijević & Giuseppe Chico. YouTube is the subject of their new performance. Camera in hand, the performer transforms the stage into an intimate room where he records his videos. A walk through the ethereal grandeur of the cosmos, in dressing gown and slippers.
