MOOT POINT 2017

DANCE RESIDENCY 2017

From  4th-9th April  in Kraftverket Tranås

 

Is it possible to move, think and work in sustainable way?

Would you download your mind into a new body instead of dying?

Would you like to experience life as an embryo another time?

Which kind utopian dreams and nightmares you imagine to come?

Moot Point is a collective of dance artists engaged in the questions of Utopia and the Body. We choose to believe in the forward motion of the question. In every sentence that ends with a questionmark there is a potential for the mind to expand and take a stroll and new situations and dreams might arrive.

Our influences are Soviet Sci-fi movies, Poetry, Michel Foucault. When we are Moot Pointing we use empty Notebooks, lots of Coffee, Friendship, Imagination and Movement . Between the poles of Utopia and Dystopia Moot Points is motivated to start working with their most precious instruments, their bodies, which are mediums for their never ending questions.
