The MÓTUS team are sad to inform that the remainder of the SPRING BITES festival is now cancelled/postponed until further notice due to COVID-19
We were extremely proud of our companies who came to perform at the weekend. These companies were:
- Company Chameleon with 'Of Man and Beast'
- Joli Vyann with 'Lance Moi En L'Air'
- Paramount Parkour and their bespoke work
- NGYT with 'What She Said'
Although we received some criticism for running the shows on the weekend via our social media, we stand by our decision to go ahead based on advice from the government, Arts Council, Centre:MK and our board. Now the situation has developed MÓTUS very quickly moved onto the next step to stop all activity. Thank you for all those who have shown their support in these difficult times for artists whose work has ceased internationally. Artists, as self-employed people need your support to survive this awful time as freelance workers who also have lives to lead, families to support and bills to pay. Please do help the self-employed whilst they are not able to work by signing this petition: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/300336

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
MÓTUS is an invaluable asset to the arts culture in Milton Keynes, and the surrounding areas.
