7 Pleasures

Following ›69 positions‹ in 2014, Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen returns with the second work in her cycle ›The Red Pieces‹ looking at the political dimensions of sexuality. In ›7 Pleasures‹ a collective of 12 dancers explore seven notions of pleasure in relation to different aspects of hedonism and sensuality. Feeling their way towards other bodies, testing and dissolving boundaries or engaging in unexpected constellations, they question how the joyful potential of pleasure can be used to counteract clichés attached to nudity and sexuality.
