About Mette Ingvartesen: to come

With wit and sensuality, political sensitivity and great candor, the U.S. premiere of to come (extended) explores indistinctions between private and public space in regard to sexual representation. Working directly on how bodies can physically connect, Ingvartsen invites us to rethink the mechanisms of desire and question the notion of individual sexual freedom as she experiments with sexual, orgasmic, and social expressions.

In this sculptural performance, the bodies of 15 performers merge into a collective group formation, making their surfaces indistinguishable from one another. Continually speeding up and slowing down, they convey the throb of our intimate desires: a diffracted form of ecstasy from which ambiguous states of excitement and pleasure might emerge.

No spoilers, but the ending is EPIC. And not what you'd expect.

Ingvartsen’s work is “admirably ambitious, audacious.” — The New York Times
