7 Pleasures

Dance

90min

The idea of exploring the body – one’s own, but also someone else’s – runs like a thread through the internationally acclaimed works of Mette Ingvartsen. The political aspect of the body is always a focal point, how it is perceived and its function as a statement in itself. The focus of her latest work “7 Pleasures” relates to different aspects of pleasure, hedonism and sensuality. As a stage collective, twelve performers execute a long, expansive movement in seven stages. They feel their way towards other bodies, their skin, testing their boundaries, engaging in unexpected constellations, and also exploring the question: how can we use the joyful potential of pleasure to disrupt images attached to nudity and sexuality?
