Mette Ingvartsen 21 Pornographies
- October 3-5 | 7pm
- US Premiere | 70 minutes
Sex is everywhere. Once shunned from the public sphere, the pornographic now saturates advertisements, language, and design. For almost a decade the Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen has created a body of work that explores an all-pervasive sexuality, changing how we relate to ourselves and to each other. With 21 Pornographies, the latest solo in the series, the artist performs a densely edited procession of references widely ranging from de Sade to 1970s Danish Porn and sexualized torture in war. Drawing connections between sex, power, politics, and crime, Ingvartsen takes the audience on an associative tour de force that is equally stimulating, disturbing, cheerful, and sensuous.
