Is pleasure selfish? Or can it transcend the individual?
As twelve dancers wearing nothing but what nature gave them join to form a single organism of ecstatic flesh, the distinction between bodies loses its certainty, and a journey in search of a pleasure beyond one’s own skin begins.
Upending clichés of nudity, 7 Pleasures obliterates taboos in its fierce and uncompromising quest to reveal the sexuality inherent in all of nature. Stripping away preconceptions about the body and self, the animate and inanimate, it reveals how the barriers between us are as thin as skin.
Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen here confirms a position at the vanguard of contemporary dance with an explosive work of tactile chaos and revolutionary joy.
