We are a multi-disciplinary research team. Each artist contributes with his or her own knowledge and perspectives. Visiting both urban and remote environments, we pay attention to motion and motion structures and capture emotional vibes from sound environment and imagery. With the places as common reference ground we transform our experiences and impressions into artistic material.

The two choreographers are responsible for transforming motion into choreographical material. Composers use memories of sounds or actual recordings of motion and people, and further develop them into music. Light design is reflected upon by other visual arts as video and graphics, and the scenographical outcome becomes a reflection of the places we’ve moved in.

We are outside, communicating with people, observing sounds, lights and motion in people and places. We might steal people’s movements when giving us directions, play with the motion of transports and explore walking in stairs or being trapped in automatic doors. We explore concepts such as “random motion”, “lack of movement”, “movements for sale”, and develop street characters, to make people in the streets take an active part: to make them move! We have also developed a questionnaire, where each question contains a different aspect of the word move, which has been distributed on the street and in performances.

As a big part of the process we’ve done residencies in different venues resulting in performances, concerts and installations. This way we have managed to further concrete our impressions, while the performative output becomes part of our idea and memory bank for the production of “What moves you?”. These performances also function as a platform to try out ideas in front of an audience, and for us to further integrate our different expressions.

The final creation process of “What moves you?” is about relating our memory bank to the present. Music, video and movement material – as well as props and clothes bought during 1st-3rd MOVE, go through selection and development. It’s both about narrowing it down to the theme of “What moves you and allow our fantasy to take over the real experience.
