Since 2019 choreographer Katja Heitmann is developing an institute for movement heritage; Motus Mori Institute. For the coming years she will build an archive for the endangered human movement. Katja and her team collect personal movements of people in different cities, preserve them in the dancers’ bodies and expose it in long-durational movement exhibitions.
Due to the current coronacrisis we cannot execute the work of Motus Mori as we planned. However we decided to continue our work of preserving the human movement, especially in these times of physical isolation.
In this first introduction-video Katja will give you an insight in the working methods of Motus Mori Institute, introduces you to the dancers and share our current activities in quarantine.
