“Can we understand technology as something that is still active in our bodies, even when all technical devices have been turned off?” (Mette Ingvartsen)

Moving in Concert

Mette Ingvartsen (Brüssel)  

30 May 2023 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2023Dance / performance

A scene shrouded in darkness, only neon tubes visible in the twilight. The space is defined by reflections and hovers in the contrast between the warmth of life - skin, bodies, nature – and the cold neon and shadows of this new abstract world. Moving in Concert imagines a world where people, technologies, and natural materials coexist. With the hourglass running out and time passing, they learn to move together, like an ensemble. Inspired by the way bodies experience the sensory effects of a digitalised world, the performance explores the poetry of plasticity, abstraction, and imagination. The audience is invited to partake in a mesmerizing landscape of abstract movement, sculptures of light, and intense colours.
