70 beats per minute

For the ‘Residenz im Realen’ program of tanzhaus nrw, Katja Heitmann worked 6 weeks long with a group of elderly people ( 65 – 86 years) from Düsseldorf in the social institution/ meeting place ‘ZentrumPlus’. Together with them she created an museum-like art-route through the building, in which the participants performed their very personal movements and motoric skills of their age.

This work was the start of the multi-year project Motus Mori.
