Mette Ingvartsen explores the way in which we deal with our bodies and sexuality today. She leads you through videos, performances, books, films, movements, text and image and thus brings history back to life.
Burrows and Fargion offer a chance to see their 2014 Venice Biennale piece Body Not Fit For Purpose. It is an attempt to reconcile personal politics with the difficulty of saying anything of consequence in a dance performance, all the while revealing the strange permeability of dance to any message that it meets.
PERFORMATIK 2015DOUBLE BILL - Body Not Fit For Purpose is the first overtly political work of choreographer Jonathan Burrows and musician Matteo Fargion. Its starting point is the uselessness of dancing to express anything of any real concern and at the same time the inherent, gloriously foolish radicality of the attempt. With sequenza, artist Manon de Boer and violinist and composer George van Dam present a programme of live performances and films around four compositions for solo violin
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.
