Mette Ingvartsen

Mette's work Evaporated Landscapes appeared as part of the Mayfield Depot programme for MIF13.

Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer. From 1999 she studied in Amsterdam and Brussels where she in 2004 graduated from the performing arts school P.A.R.T.S. Her first performance Manual Focus (2003) was made while she was still studying. Since then she has instigated several research projects and made numerous performances.

Questions of kinesthesia, perception, affect and sensation have been crucial to most of her work. Recently her interest has turned towards thinking choreography as an extended practice. Starting with evaporated landscapes in 2009, a performance for foam, fog, light and sound, this interest has led to a series of propositions that extend choreography into non-human materials. In 2010 she worked on several site-specific propositions, also dealing with notions of artificial nature.

Besides her performance work she is engaged in research. Her practice involves writing, making, performing and documenting work. She teaches and gives workshops often related to developing methodologies within choreographic practices. Since 2005 she has been working on everybodys, an open ongoing collaborative project based on open source strategies, aiming at producing tools and games that can be used by artists to develop work. She works as an editor for everybodys publications.
