What Moves Us is a moment in your life, a connection in between people, a risky space, a participatory experience.

Interdisciplinary performance investigation that explores different possibilities of collaboration and artistic formats (dance, video, music, etc.) starting from the questions What moves you? / What moves us?. The question is both an epistemic and ontological reflection emanating as a way to give back meaning to our everyday. Chance and chaos are essential elements in the performance, providing a surprising spectrum of variants and possibilities.
