Mette Ingvartsen: The Permeable Stage – Reimagining the Social

Performance at Performance Space New York, October 7, 2018, 1-9pm

With contributions from Patricia T. Clough, Annie Dorsen, Che Gossett, Mette Ingvartsen, Romuald Karmakar, Isabel Lewis and Carolee Schneemann.

"In her tireless quest to reconcile thinking, dancing, and feeling, Mette Ingvartsen makes performances that stimulate the intellect and organizes conferences that appeal to the senses. For The Permeable Stage she invites artists, theorists, filmmakers, and activists to enter into a interdisciplinary dialogue about new relationships between humans, technologies, things, animals, plants and other matters. The focus of the day is on how to reimagine the social, by including non-humans into the way we think about collective structures and how we live together on this planet. The public is invited to experience how the different contributions resonate with one another and to participate in turning the theater into a space for discussion, sensorial occasions, and imaginative exchanges."
