Choreographer and interpreter Mette Edvardsen situates her work in the field of performing arts. Although some of her works explore other media or other formats, such as video, books and writing, her interest always lies in their relationship to the performing arts as a practice and a situation. Beginning in 1994, she interpreted works for several companies, and has been presenting her own work internationally since 2002. The Black Box theatre in Oslo hosted a retrospective overview of her work in 2015. Her work was the focus of a programme at the MACBA in Barcelona in 2018 and the Amant in New York City in 2022.Currently in residence at the Laboratoires in Aubervilliers, she is part of a work group in which Léa Poiré and Victoria Perez Royo play a pivotal role. She is a research fellow at Oslo Arts Academy and has the backing of the Norwegian Arts Council (2022-2026).

“Repetition is not unfamiliar to anyone practicing dance. Repetition is commonly used as a method for learning, and also as a compositional device. In French, the word répétition refers both to the act of repeating and rehearsing. Repetition comes from old french répéter, to say or do again, get back, demand the return of. I have worked with the concept of repetition in several ways, and I would like to propose it as material for the workshop and a loupe through which we observe what is around us, its patterns and details.”
