Few puts the headlight as strong and sharp on pornography, sex and nudity as the choreographer METTE INGVARTSEN. In 2005, she started her series The Red Pieces where she explores the theme of pleasure, enjoyment, pornography, sex and the relationship between sexuality and the public sphere.
Now she is back at The house of the dance with “to come (extended)” an performance that literally dissolves sexual rules and conventions.

Skin, body fluids, chest and back parts. You can not escape. In our everyday lives, we all meet a constant stream of images on bodies in sexualized positions. They are featured on advertisers, in movies, on the internet, in newspapers and magazines. How we behave – both in the public space and in private – are highly influenced by these erotic images, texts and sounds. The option to turn off is no longer available. The desire has become a “must”.
The question is whether we can at all think and act freely in our sexuality?

Mette Ingvartsen’s choreography dissects how we look at pleasure and lust. In “To come (extended)” melts the 15 dancers together into a common organism and the choreography plays with sexual poser and orgasmic expressions.
“To come (extended)” is a development of her work “To come” from 2005
The performance is part of Mette’s series “The Red Pieces”, where she explores the theme of pleasure, enjoyment, pornography, sex and the relationship between sexuality and the public sphere. The series includes the previous pieces “69 Positions”, “21 pornographies” and “7 Pleasures”, which were featured in The house of the dance in the autumn of 2016.
