Portrait of Mette Ingvartsen sitting with crossed arms

Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer. She began her training in 1999 in Amsterdam, continuing on to Brussels where she graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in 2004. Distinguished by its hybrid nature, her choreographic work blends dance and movement with other disciplines, with a particular focus on the visual arts, technology and language. Between 2009 and 2012, The Artificial Nature Series developed a work cycle on human/non-human relationships. Her most recent creations, part of the series The Red Pieces – 69 positions (2014), 7 Pleasures (2015), to come (extended) and 21 pornographies (2017) – probe the history of human performance and the body as a site of political struggle.
