Mette Ingvartsen & Will Guthrie [DK/AU] PRESENTED BY KANAL – CENTRE POMPIDOU
21.03 – 22.03.2019
Drummer Will Guthrie and choreographer Mette Ingvartsen are performing together for the first time. You encircle the stage, on which a drum kit, a moving light installation and the bodies of the performers confront each other. Rotations, rhythm and speed are the primary components of a performance that builds up to an ecstatic trance.
• The Danish dancer and choreographer Mette Ingvartsen graduated from PARTS in 2004, and was an artist-in-residence at Kaaitheater from 2013 until 2016. She lives and works in Brussels. Will Guthrie is an Australian drummer/percussionist living in France. He plays solo and in several bands, using different combinations of drums, percussion, amplification and electronics.
