For reasons directly and indirectly linked to COVID, Mette Edvardsen has had to postpone the premiere of Livre d’image sans image. The shows at Kaaistudios are cancelled and will take place on a later date – to be confirmed soon.

Choreography is writing. Based in this realization, Mette Edvardsen has taken a new step in the writing process that she has been developing over the past ten years. She does not consider dance primarily as a visual art, rather she experiences how it engages all the other senses, such as listening, feeling and imagining. In the new creation Livre d’images sans images, Edvardsen collects song lyrics and texts that you hear in various forms – live and recorded. The unstable dramaturgy allows things to exist side by side, without necessarily creating unity. How can you un-write something?

• Over the past ten years, choreographer, dancer and performance artist Mette Edvardsen has created a refined series of performances around the human voice. Almost all of them were staged at the Kaaistudio's. During the Kunstenfestivaldesarts 2019, she joined forces with Matteo Fargion, resulting in the memorable Penelope Sleeps.
