to come (extended)
Through advertising, films, and the internet, we are constantly confronted with images of sexualised bodies. Every form of intimacy is eroticised and commercialised. Bare breasts, bodily fluids, and backsides are no longer the preserve of dark hidden corners, but are part of our daily lives and influence our behaviour. to come (extended) investigates the disappearing boundary between private and public space and with it our sexual identity.
In a sensual choreography, we see fifteen performers pulsing rhythmically, wrapped in tight blue bodysuits, reducing their bodies to abstract shapes. In this way, they dissect the dynamics of an orgasm by slowing down to an extreme, then boosting the rhythm again like a music score. to come (extended) takes a critical look at the notions of ‘individual sexual freedom’ and the ‘pornification of pleasure’.
