The work of Mette Edvardsen is situated within the performing arts field as a choreographer and performer. Although some of her works explore other media or other formats, such as video, books and writing, her interest is always in their relationship to the performing arts as a practice and a situation. With a base in Brussels since 1996 she has worked for several years as a dancer and performer for a number of companies and projects, and develops her own work since 2002. She presents her works internationally and continues to develop projects with other artists, both as a collaborator and as a performer. A retrospective of her work was presented at Black Box theatre (Oslo) in 2015, and a focus program Idiorhythmias at MACBA (Barcelona) in 2018. She is a research fellow at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (2016-2019) and associated artist at Black Box teater Oslo (2018-2019).
