MÓTUS are being supported by Arts Council England to profile makers, choreographers and directors who work in dance to talk about PROCESS.
Process is key and integral to any dance work aimed at being watched. It requires craftsmanship and skill. Choreographers will have various methods at finding their stimulus, their inspiration for creating and this may present itself in various forms outside of dance to include:
- News and social circumstance and issues
- Political stimuluses globally
- An interest in form - but this might come from other art forms to include fine art, sculpture, photography - an endless list.
- Space, location, context and history.
This list presents just an introduction of possible starting points from which dance may start but essentially - the choreographer must be driven to CREATE. Without drive and reason and potentially a need - the work would remain simply an idea. Choreographers are driven through urge and inspiration to communicate things physically.
MÓTUS is working with 4 choreographers and makers at various stages of their career to provide insight into HOW they make their work.
The four commissioned artists and companies are:
