The movements of everyday life
are often so familiar to us
that we hardly notice them anymore.
Our process is trying
the seemingly familiar movements
to make unfamiliar (vice versa).
through repetition and alienation with the question:
Who actually controls whom here?
○ Exchange between participants:
○ Who are you?
○ What is your approach to movement?
○ What movement experience do you have?
○ Recognize a movement.
○ Execute it.
○ Repeat it.
○ Abstract it.
○ What do you feel now?
○ Movements arise
○ Movements get staged and performed
○ Movements are filmed
○ Movements will be shared and published
○ Movements get reflected
● who can participate (maximum 30 participants)
any human being regardless of the background, level of experience and physical condition
«people doing moves» is a performance project with a mission to support anyone feeling like an artist of their bodies.
Pay attention to a single movement
Pay attention to personality
With your unique mind, you can be more and more aware of your art form. We are looking for ways to enrich them. Our workshops are about feeling art in your body through movement – play, absurdity, silliness, beauty and aesthetics. We want to help you to open your mind and body, to have fun in the process and to spur creativity

The intention behind this is to question the perception of one’s surroundings and habits through movement. Choreographies, scenarios and movements are created in the immediate vicinity.
