Whet your appetite with manger, a delectable work by French choreographer Boris Charmatz (Levée des conflits, 2016 Fringe Festival) that implores audiences to examine the nature of eating, of digesting information, of consuming.

Charmatz subjects dance to formal constraints which redefine its possibilities. In manger (French for “to eat”), he sets bodies in motion not with the eyes, or with the limbs, but with the mouth: dancers chew through reams of paper, taste, swallow, sing, eat. The mouth is a crossroads where food, voices, breath, words, and saliva intermix: it is a locus where the inside and the outside, the self and the other meet, taste each other, engage each other, interchange and ingest each other. manger is a swallowed reality, a slow digestion of the world.

Presented in partnership with Westphal College of Media Arts & Design as part of Philadelphia Museum of Dance. Learn more at http://charmatz.westphal.drexel.edu/pmd/
