Moving in concert
In Moving in Concert, Mette Ingvartsen creates a hallucinatory world of light, shadows, shapes and colours. In this world, humans, technology and organic matter form an abstract whole. Inspired by how bodies are sensorially affected by the digital, this performance explores a poetics of plasticity, abstraction and imagination.
Starting time: 8:30 p.m.
Duration: 60 minutes, excl. intermission
The Danish Ingvartsen always manages to shape her abstract themes into clever, funny and stimulating performances. She creates sensory (dance) theatre, in which the audience sometimes shares the space with the performers. This time, Ingvartsen and nine dancers create a universe of light and darkness, shapes and reflections. Images appear and disappear as the dancers move objects and light sources through the space.
-|-Ingvartsen graduated in 2003 from the Brussels dance academy P.A.R.T.S. and was artist-in-residence at the Kaaitheater in Brussels from 2012 to 2016. Dance festival Julidans has previously shown in ITA Ingvartsen's three-part series The Red Pieces, about the meaning of nudity and sexuality in our society and about the boundaries between public and private.
