Work in progress
In Livre d’images sans images Mette Edvardsen pursues the writing process that she has been developing over the last ten years. Considering choreography as writing, she has created a series of performances working with language as material and where voice is central. She thinks of dance as not being primarily a visual art form, but that other senses are engaged, like listening, feeling, imagining. This new work consists of a collection of texts that are performed in an informal setting with both spoken and recorded voice. The piece is composed with an unstable dramaturgy where things can exist next to each other without creating unity, a form of un-writing.
