The mechanisms of pornography
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.
• 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.
