Motus Mori Meeting the archive

In Motus Mori: meeting the archive, Katja zooms in on the individual movement and her dancers look for the personal encounter within their archive. In the first part of this personal appointment, a dancer will look for the core of your personal motor skills in a ‘movement interview’. In the second part you meet your fellow man through the dancer’s body. The dancer ‘indexes’ and connects your specific movement to that of the many other people in the archive. Based on this personal index, the dancer creates a unique movement artwork. A special experience, especially in these times when we are only allowed to meet so few people in person.

All collected movements will become part of the Motus Mori archive that will travel to different cities in the coming years.
