Embodied Memory with Katja Heitmann

12th July 2024

Since 2019, Dutch / German choreographer Katja Heitmann has been growing her Motus Mori archive, collecting everyday human movement that form the basis for new artworks.

Her latest work, CORPUS, was shown in Leeds Art Gallery in December 2023 in collaboration with Yorkshire Dance.

In 2024, she will focus her research on the ageing body and the fading memory. What embodied memories are triggered by physical movement? Which movements are still remembered by the body, even when the cognitive memory fades? In this lecture-performance, Katja will share her findings and the artistic plans that can arise from it.
