MOTION BANK is a new four year project (2010-2013) of The Forsythe Company providing a broad context for research into choreographic practice. The main focus is on the creation of on-line digital scores in collaboration with guest choreographers* to be made publicly available via the Motion Bank website. Both these unique score productions and development of related teaching curriculum will be undertaken with and rely on the expertise and experience of key collaborative partners.

Public educational activities and events reflecting the diverse issues related to score creation will be offered at The Frankfurt Lab, and will include performances and presentations of the guest choreographers as well as lectures. Workshops and residencies organized with senior scientists and scholars aim to stimulate interdisciplinary research based on questions coming from dance practice. Exchange of information with and support for related projects is facilitated through working groups and associate networks.

The pilot project for Motion Bank is the award winning Synchronous Objects for One Flat Thing, reproduced: a joint project of William Forsythe and The Ohio State University’s Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design and the Department of Dance.

*The guest choreographers for 2010-2013 will be Deborah Hay, Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion, and Bruno Beltrão.
