Warm Up Session Mette Ingvartsen

Mette Ingvartsen’s work is located at the frontier of bodies and matter, which she stages and choreographs in her pieces.
Sexuality is both an object of study and a pivot in her work, and is explored in dialogue with surrounding ecosystems. Dance, but also sounds and installations, translate both the ecstasy and ambiguities of our interactions. This Warm Up Session will allow us to unravel Mette’s stage as grounds for play and experimentation with movement, from the most trivial gesture to the most intimate.

Warm Up Sessions : a training for the body and mind. From jumpstyle to ballet, from break dance to contemporary, practice then discuss the indispensable movements and gestures that anticipate a performance - the ultimate moment of sharing with an audience. Each Session will begin with a warm up led by the invited dancer or collective, and will be followed by a discussion on themes bridging body movements and social realities : the performativity of the human condition, circulations and physical disruptions in a decorporalized era. With the Warm Up Sessions, we aspire to associate bodily effort with mindful effervescence.

Recommended to wear comfortable clothes to move in, open to all.

Curated by Madeleine Planeix-Crocker.
