“Sets body, mind and machine in motion to show both their generative beauty and their alienating force. A work of great subtlety that never relies on preconceived ideas.” – Caroline Godart, Mouvement

Moving in Concert, featuring nine dancers, imagines a universe where humans, technologies and natural materials coexist to create an abstract set of movement. Inspired by how bodies are sensorially affected by living in a digitalized world, the performance explores a poetics of plasticity, abstraction and imagination.

Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer. Questions of kinesthesia, perception, affect and sensation have been crucial to most of her work, which includes several site-specific projects that have been seen around the world. Her works include 21 pornographies, to come (extended)69 positions, The Artificial Nature Project, The Extra Sensorial Garden, and many more. Skatepark, a large-scale performance for skaters, dancers and local skatepark communities, premiered in 2023. Mette is currently preparing Rush, a solo performance for Manon Santkin that draws on 20 years of collaboration. Ingvartsen established her company in 2003 and her work has since then been shown throughout Europe, as well as in the U.S, Canada, Australia and Asia. She has been artist-in-residence at Kaaitheater in Brussels (2012-2016), Volksbühne in Berlin, and associated to the APAP network.
