Adjustments - 15 April 2021 MK Gallery- 7pm

 

MÓTUS returns to MK Gallery to produce their ninth edition of Adjustments.

 

Join MÓTUS for an evening of dance performance and discussion streamed live from the Sky Room. 

If you have ever wondered what goes into creating a piece of dance performance - whether within the abstract or dance theatre style  - this could be for you.

Three choreographers will share new work in progress to receive feedback from the online audience and a friendly professional industry panel on their work and its impact, to help further mould, shape and develop their creations. 

Join us online to experience something insightful, physical and different.

We currently have two positions available within MOTUS Dance. Please see titles below. Simply click on the buttons below to download the full job descriptions and information about how to apply for each role.

Vanhulle Dance Theatre present ‘BOO SHIM’ (Empty Mind)

Using Oliver’s Martial Arts techniques (Tang Soo Do) together with Laura’s movement flow (Influenced by Kathak, African Dance, Yoga, Gymnastics) the duet are working on creating a specific choreographic language for audiences.

WAKE

TAMZEN MOULDING

Wake is a short film, commissioned by MÓTUS, about living with all the different versions of ourselves. Created by Inverted with original music by Aelfyn Shipton, directed by James Bonas, with filming and edit by Simon Becket, this is an original film created specifically for filming during the Covid-19 pandemic.


Narratively, Wake follows the same character (Tamzen Moulding) over time - habituating the same space, alone.  Wake reflects on the past ‘versions’ of ourselves and the deeply engrained memories that habituate our physicality.

Thank You Culture Recovery Fund

MÓTUS are delighted to have received money from the Culture Recovery Fund and are busy putting the
money to create opportunities and jobs. Culture creates jobs, supports livelihoods, and brings joy to everyone. The UK leads the world in the creative industries and we can all feel pride in that.

Now, in these challenging times, it’s our turn to show our support for culture. With an unprecedented

investment through the £1.57bn Cultural Recovery Fund, the government is #HereForCulture so it can
weather the storm of coronavirus and come back stronger.

And we are #HereForCulture too.

#HereForCulture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.

With more and more culture being curated online, there is no better time to support and enjoy all the new and exciting ways culture is available to us.

By being #HereForCulture, we aren’t just supporting the people in the industry, we’re also supporting
communities across the country.

Our mission is to see our theatres and arts scenes bustling with life from every age group and from every sector of the community - everyone is welcome here. - Helen Parlor (Artistic Director) and the MÓTUS team
