Movement Study: Holte/Sterud/Kongsness – Mitaka Lofts

Screen Shot 2015-01-09 at 12.27.33 AMUnderstanding/testing/evolving procedural architecture requires studying the moving/being that can happen in it. Biotopology is a somatic science or it must become one.

This short film was made during a one-week research stay in the Reversible Destiny Lofts, Mitaka, in April 2014. It features and was produced by Solveig Styve Holte, Marte Reithaug Sterud and Ann-Christin Berg Kongsness, three dancers/choreographers based in Norway. In relation to the architecture and writings of Arakawa and Gins the artists tried to investigate the relationship between this specific space and choreography, dealing with themes such as existence, collectivity and violence.
