Mette Ingvartsen

Lecture on The Red Pieces

28.04.2018

In this talk Mette Ingvartsen will speak about her recent performance investigations. Starting from her current interest in pornography and the decline of privacy she will speculate about the relationship between sexuality, pleasure, performance and economy. The lecture reflects upon how borders between private and public space are dissolving and how this process is fuelled by an increasing demand for self-performance and self-exposure within media and communication driven economies.

• Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer. From 1999 she studied in Amsterdam and Brussels where she graduated from PARTS in 2004. She has initiated several research projects and made numerous performances.

Mette Ingvartsen aims to explore and expose the fact that pornography has rooted itself deep within our society. In the fourth instalment of her Red Pieces cycle, she mixes physical actions with narrative passages, presenting you with a veritable mental choreography. She again holds up her magnifying glass to sexuality – resulting in an extraordinarily intense production.
