since 2013 our dance research project “Motion Bank” has been organising “Choreographic Coding Labs” (CCLs). The format … »offers unique opportunities of exchange and collaboration for digital media artists (you ) who have an interest in translating aspects of choreography and dance into digital form and applying choreographic thinking to their own practice.« To illustrate what we mean here is a short documentation from our CCL in NYC in 2015:
The upcoming edition is very special as it is A) happening in Mainz, Germany, where the Motion Bank project is now based and B) is part of a larger funded (by Kulturstiftung des Bundes) cooperation of Motion Bank, Kunsthalle Mainz and Staatstheater Mainz. The collaboration, which is called “Between Us”, deals with the exchange and transformation of knowledge from and between the participating disciplines: art, dance and science. Not only will the CCL mark the starting point of the collaboration and creation of a new dance piece by Finnish choreographer Taneli Törmä, it will also inform the process of exchange between all participating artists.
