Mette Ingvartsen

Moving in Concert

Part of the festival “Spy on Me #2”


60 min.

This new HAU co-production by Mette Ingvartsen imagines a universe where humans, technologies and natural materials coexist and create different conceptions of life form. Together with nine dancers, she asks how can we understand technology as something that is still active in our bodies, even when all technical devices have been turned off. On stage hallucinatory visual impressions emerge as the dancers transport sources of light through space. The audience is invited to a mesmerising landscape produced by abstract movement, sculptures of light and sensations of colour.
