Photocall for 'Manger" by Boris Charmatz presented by Sadler's Wells and Tate.
In 'Manger' Charmatz challenges the role that the mouth and eating play in choreography, dance and performance.
How to set bodies in motion not with the eyes, or with the limbs, but with the mouth? How to use this hollowness as a perceptual frame in its own right? The mouth is a crossroads where food, voices, breath, words, and saliva intermix: it is a locus of circulation, where the inside and the outside, the self and the other meet, taste each other, engage each other, interchange, and ingest each other.
