In the piece, which is both music theatre and dance performance, the audience itself becomes part of a living sound installation. Electronic sounds emanate from their own mobile phone loudspeakers, which change depending on the distance to the performers and merge into a single collective body of sound.

Language no problem

Inspired by the historical phenomenon of dancing manias, Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen explores mass outbreaks of dancing. In an intense mixture of ecstatic outbursts and relentless beats, her latest solo, “The Dancing Public”, is a dance party, a spoken word concert and an expression of physical madness to the point of exhaustion. In the aftermath of a pandemic, this shape-shifting piece asks: What is this extreme need for movement that we feel in our bodies today? Are we ready to taste life to the full again?
