Meet the artist after the show on 18.08

Exploring desire and its representation in a world where omnipresent sexuality infiltrates all social relationships, 7 Pleasures dives into the darkness of souls.
Desire is overexposed and confronted to its contradictions and violence, without imposing a judgement on the spectator. The cold erotization of the scene gives way to quirky states of bodies, going from viscous to trance, obsession to detachment, in composition and assemblage modes in which a human tests her/his very limits in the irrevocable solitude of her/his sensations.  

Mette Ingvartsen gives her show an extremely substantial form by working the stage as a place for intensity and ruptures - in the same way as we deal with our own desire.
