How does technology act on our bodies? How can human bodies organise themselves and move together as a visual scenography? The 9 performers of Moving in Concert create a universe in which people, technology and natural materials coexist in a captivating image. The choreography is an arrangement of shapes and patterns, of sculptures made of light, and of intense sensations of colour that combine to influence our experience of space, unadorned bodies and objects. Amid a stream of sensation, the performance becomes a poetic exploration of the visual, the abstract and the imagined.
With Moving in Concert, Mette Ingvartsen continues her work exploring the changing nature of the body in our context of perpetual evolution. Interrogating the porous boundaries between individuals, objects and materials, she creates performances – like The Artificial Nature Project or evaporated landscapes – that stand at the frontier of visual arts and installation. At TNB, Ingvartsen has previously presented 69 positions, 7 Pleasures, and to come, 3 performances dedicated to the discourse on and representation of sexuality.
