After four years research into the creation of digital dance scores with guest choreographers, the Motion Bank project of The Forsythe Company will conclude Phase One with a presentation of results both live and on-line and proposals for the future.

Schmidtstrasse 12, Frankfurt am Main

Live & OnLine will begin Thursday evening 28 November at 7 pm with a first public presentation of the on-line Motion Bankmaterials of guest choreographers Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion, Bebe Miller and Thomas Hauert, alongside an updated version of Deborah Hay’s website ‘Using the Sky’ first presented in June 2013 at Tanzkongress, Düsseldorf. Additionally, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, ZOO/ Thomas Hauert will present the German Premiere of MONO. 

Friday through Sunday activities are organised to support a fluid exchange of ideas and approaches to the creation and use of the new Motion Bank materials alongside related choreographic resources published by a growing Community of Practice (see:http://motionbank.org/en/content/research). Key individuals working with these projects have been invited to join the Motion Bankteam members to take part in and contribute to workshops, Q&A and public discussion during the days. Also planned is a major platform for dance students from Frankfurt, Dresden and Berlin to share the results of their research into applications of these resources.

Running in parallel with Live & OnLine, Choreographic Coding explores how to translate aspects of dance and choreography into digital form, one of the main goals of Motion Bank. This is a laboratory for 'code savvy' practitioners with expertise in digital media practice, e.g. video, graphics, programming.  Teams combining different skill sets including dance and choreography are encouraged to apply.
