What is a space’s movement legacy? Especially for tanzhaus nrw, Netherlands-based choreographer and movement researcher Katja Heitmann installs a movement archive of the city of Düsseldorf in that she dedicates herself to all those small and even smaller movements that become circumstantial in everyday life. She bestows attention and space to every kind of physicalness. Katja Heitmann has been working on a method to keep those movements alive and to make them accessible since 2018. During a lecture performance, Katja Heitmann and her team provide an introduction to the movement archive. On the following day, interested audiences may donate their own movements in the form of an interview to the “Motus Mori Düsseldorf” archive. All those who are interested, regardless of age and prior dance knowledge, are very much invited to participate. Katja Heitmann will continue her research in an open studio at tanzhaus nrw in April 2020, opening the experience in a unique movement exhibition from April 16 until April 19.
