21 Pornographies - Mette Ingvartsen

09/03/2018 - 10/03/2018

The mechanisms of pornography
Starting from the idea that pornography has leaked into many areas of contemporary society, Mette Ingvartsen explores the operations of the pornographic through a collection of erotic and affective materials. Most of them have little to do with explicit sex, yet they show some characteristics of the pornographic: expressions of cruelty, clinical precision, violence and pain, but sometimes also of pleasure, excitement and thrill. By mixing physical action with narrative descriptions, a speculative choreography is created.
• The Danish dancer and choreographer Mette Ingvartsen graduated from PARTS in 2004, and was an artist-in-residence at het Kaaitheater from 2013 until 2016. In this third instalment of her cycle The Red Pieces – which follows the solo 69 Positions, the group choreography 7 Pleasures, and the research event The Permeable Stage – she returns to her study of sexuality.
