Motus Mori: meeting the archive

Katja Heitmann
 

SPRING will be an official test event this year. Read here all about this.

Meet your fellow humans through the body of a dancer. With Motus Mori, choreographer Katja Heitmann is compiling an archive of human movement. More than 700 people have donated their movements to it. A stooped back that wants to straighten, a wink by way of a greeting, a nervous index finger twisting a lock of hair, a sudden shake of the head during a laugh; all of these personal, everyday movements that are stored away inside a dancer’s body. Especially for SPRING, Heitmann and her dancers are going in search of the personal encounter within the archive.

A dancer will conduct a ‘movement-interview’ with you to find out what constitutes your personal motor skills. Next, the dancer presents you with a ‘movement portrait’ in which you will meet your fellow humans; the dancer indexes your movement and connects it to others inside the archive. A unique one-on-one experience, especially in these times when our physical encounters with other people are few and far between.
