Live Streaming Performance: Mette Ingvartsen
LIVE STREAMING OF PERFORMANCES
Live broadcasts of short performances commissioned by BoCA, thought through the relational body-camera-home device. A relationship is proposed around our current state of confinement and the artistic languages mediated by the camera. The performances are live on the BoCA Bienal YouTube channel. Every Saturday until at least the 30th of June 2020.
13 JUN, 8pm (West): Mette Ingvartsen (Denmark)
Followed by a conversation with John Romão
An important strand of her work was developed between 2009 and 2012 with The Artificial Nature Series, in which she focused on reconfiguring relations between human and non-human agency through choreography. By contrast her latest series, The Red Pieces (2014-2017) inscribes itself into a history of human performance with a focus on nudity, sexuality and how the body historically has been a site for political struggles. She has been artist in residence at the Kaaitheater in Brussels, Volksbühne in Berlin, as well as associated to the APAP network. Ingvartsen holds a PhD in choreography from Stockholm’s University of the Arts.
