Mette Ingvartsen (Denmark), Żywe rzeźby z ciał badają wieczną orgazmiczną przyjemność
An orgy of cold minds and feverish bodies. Ingvartsen examines how to find the ecstatic bodily pleasure in times of premeditated pornography and idealised body images. First, the dancers in blue latex costumes silently construct moving sculptures out of various sexual configurations. Later, being naked, they vigorously perform a joyful but physically demanding dance – swinging lindy hop. Vigour becomes performance, enthusiasm changes into work. It is an arduous labour towards melting in ecstasy.
