Mette Ingvartsen, evaporated landscapes, 2009
Dance & Performance

With "evaporated landscapes" Mette Ingvartsen creates an environment devoid of humans. Based on perishable materials such as light, sound, soap bubbles and foam the performance creates a continually changing artificial world. Choreography here no longer means the organisation of bodies and their movements in space. It is rather understood more as a relationship between volatile elements, elements which slide and disappear in space and which are both reminiscent of 'the natural' and not too distant from 'the artificial', suggesting possible futures. The volatility of the landscape reveals itself not only on stage, but also in the bodies of the audience, brought out by the impressions and sensations experienced during the performance.
