PEOPLE DOING MOVES

ABOUT

Hä*Wie!? Kollektiv

SYNOPSIS

The movement of everyday life is often so familiar to us that we barely consciously perceive it. Through repetition and alienation, our work is an attempt to make the seemingly familiar movements unfamiliar (and vice versa), driven by the question: "Who actually controls whom?"

In the video "people doing moves," created by the collectives Hä*Wie!? and Taet Vremya, a group of young men perform short movements. They use their bodies in unusual and witty ways, forming individual and social sculptures in space. The video is, in a way, an archive and accumulation of movement possibilities. With the intention to recognize movements that have relevance to an individual, the research investigates what a body can do.

The research with the naked body, objects, and groups – with and without causal relations – generates a practical discrimination and a value system. Inspired by the sense of value and the resulting consensus of movements, the collective questions contexts of various kinds with their created movements and addresses themes such as sexuality, spirituality and aesthetics.

The lapidary movements recorded in the video are inspired by the early works of Koki Tanaka, who examined the relationship between objects and actions, revealing their hidden potentials. In the video "people doing moves," the young men’s bodies or body parts function like Tanaka's objects. With repetitive sequences of motion, they generate new geometrical and often absurd forms and patterns. In addition to the body, its physical presence and its formability, the film is about the interaction and the extended possibilities of action in community.

ABOUT TANZ ZUR TOLERANZ

~ mit TANZ zur Toleranz ~ is a short documentary about the inclusive community dance project “Mit TANZ zur Toleranz” ( Eng.: Through dance to tolerance). The project started in fall 2018 as a workshop for a mixed group of hobby dancers with and without disabilities. After just one year it evolved into a broader programme that offers community dance workshops once per month. Essential characteristics of this Hamburg based dance programme are on the one hand the openness of the participants towards new experience with movement as such and with one another. On the other hand the coherence of the dancers is truly unique as the connection among them emerges at each workshop anew. Everyone who likes to dance is warmly welcome to take part at the “Mit TANZ zur Tolerance” workshops. The project is being sponsored by Nader Etmenan Foundation. The documentary presented at the TANZAHOi Festival 2020 is a depiction of the working process of the community dance workshops rather than a professional movie.
