to come (extended)
Mette Ingvartsen

Dance, Performance
ca. 65 min

to come (extended) disrupts the erotic order of things. In an orgiastic setting, 15 performers question the notion of individual sexual freedom. Their bodies merge into a collective group formation. Extremely slow paced states of ecstatic arousal, frantically accelerate again in the next moment. The enjoyment of abstract colours and shapes combines with the rhythmic pulsing of the sensual, lustful group of figures.

„Eine effektvolle Durchhaltenummer feiert den nackten Körper und Mensch als wundervolles Mängelwesen: Nackt bis auf Tennissocken und Turnschuhe hüpfen, shaken und kicken die Performer zu Big-Band-Swing und mitreißendem Lindi-Hop auf der Bühne." - Berliner Morgenpost
