Motionhouse is our home base for creativity, dreaming, doing, exchange and most importantly connecting with people. Our goal is to make space for new conversations and work in a way that dissolves art form boundaries and cross-pollinate audiences. We believe that art is how we reflect upon the world, to exchange, to connect, rage and respond. Our artistic practice fosters the culture of collaboration through research and experimentation of art forms and challenges conventions of practice to test new pathways and approaches. It is derived from a place of curiosity to invade categorisation and use dance movement as the canvas to interlink a physical exploration.
We have taken audiences into depths of Europes deepest forests to the basement of an abandoned power plant and refurbished coal mine presenting installations, films, photography and performances. Our work has also been presented at international film festivals, theatres, galleries, VOD platforms and broadcast channels. We look to technology as we explore future possibilities of creating experiences for audiences. Film is our primary lens which lead us to creating our latest work Extant that immerses and intertwines the use of camera within a live cinema performance.
