An intriguing choreography about pleasure, excitement and violence
‘21 pornographies’ is part of the series ‘The Red Pieces’ by Mette Ingvartsen, in which the Brussels-based Dane creates choreographies exploring sexuality. In doing so, she doesn’t work with explicitly sexual images, but draws inspiration from film and literature.
The legalisation of porn sparked an erotic emancipation, but at the same time pornography tends to have a strong aspect of power and politics. It’s no surprise that the word ‘pornography’ comes from the Greek ‘pernanai’, meaning ‘to sell’. Ingvartsen is inspired by the mechanisms from pornography that have permeated all levels of our society: a hyper-sexualised visual culture, a collective obsession with pleasure, excitement and climax, but also power (and its abuse), cruelty, violence and pain.
By combining physical action with narrative descriptions, Ingvartsen creates a speculative choreography that stimulates both our imagination and our senses.
