Mette Ingvartsen BE

Choreographer and dancer Mette Ingvartsen graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in 2004 and has been developing her own projects since 2002. Her work deals with the change of perspectives and the perception of the body within different frameworks of presentation. In 2008 she took part in '6M1L - SIX MONTHS ONE LOCATION' a project confronting questions around education, structures of production and artistic exchange initiated by Xavier Le Roy and Bojana Cvejic. She is part of the collective COCO’s who presented Breeding, Brains and Beauty in 2008 and has collaborated with Jan Ritsema and Bojana Cvejic on several theater performances. In 2010 she turned her attention to projects dealing with notions of artificial nature. In this context she created 'Giant City' and 'Evaporated Landscapes' and also 'The Artificial Nature Project' (2012). In October 2014 she returned with the premiere of '69 positions', the first part of her 'Red Pieces' cycle focusing on the relation between the politics of the body and structures of society. This was followed by the second work of the series '7 pleasures' in 2016. Mette Ingvartsen is part of the new artistic team at the Volksbühne in Berlin under the direction of Chris Dercon. She holds a PhD in choreography from UNIARTS/ Lunds University in Sweden.
