A choreography for the collarbone, a dance of bellybutton, stomach fat and ribcage, the anatomy of a sigh. German choreographer Katja Heitmann (1987) and her dancers will create a physical exhibition for Marres. Museum Motus Mori; a museum for movements that are facing extinction. Heitmann is fascinated by efficiency reasoning. Technological progress allows humans to thoroughly ‘optimize’ their living environments. Will mankind end up optimizing itself? Will movements that are useless or inefficient in our control society slowly but surely fade away? Can we store those human movements? For six weeks, five hours a day, ten dancers will take on the challenge of preserving movements that risk becoming extinct. Each day they will zoom in on human motorics and dissect it into anatomical patterns, structures, seemingly everlasting loops. They keep on moving, they keep on searching, each day anew. Visitors are invited to follow the dancers over the course of these six weeks in an exhibition that is continuously moving forward.
