To Come (2005) by Mette Ingvartsen

“to come” is Mette Ingvartsen’s third group work and was developed together with the performers. Working on notions of pleasure and desire, they question how bodies perform as part of a group, as part of an intimate relation, or as the part of being individual. When is the body in a state/space where it is governed by its desires and what kind of social situations contain such governing? It is a rethinking of how bodies can connect and reconnect so that new forms of enjoyment can arise. “to come” proposes an excessive body of pleasure, an overexcitement of speed and vibration produced by sensual figures. Colors and surfaces mix with a sensation of rhythmic pulsing.

We are surrounded by images of sexual bodies. Commercials, cinema, magazines, internet, all kind of media expose the intimate and the erogenous. Flesh, fluids, skin, tits and muscles no longer belong to the late hours in a dark joint somewhere around the corner but to our daily life input. We can’t just click the “deselect” that controls the stimulation of desires and how it effects our view upon bodies in general. Pleasure is a must.
