Move-r: The moved and perpetually moving in this performance is our own mutating group authorship, in which, by applying and changing various approaches and systems, together we shape every aspect of the performance.
We challenge originality, copying and ownership of ideas, particularly those pertaining to movement, whereas individual characteristics of every Move-r and the differences originating from them we find important, recognizing them as a contribution to the quality of joint contemplation and creation.

We move the group and, in moving together, we find ourselves in a zone where anything can be discussed, in which an aspect of the performance is always changed – space, time and the person in a specific situation; where it is difficult, impossible maybe, to stop the process or define something as completed. Being within such movement, we accept our performance as a shifting entity with a focus on the unpredictability of respecting the current decision in a given moment, thereby exploring an area of the new and/or unknown through the mechanisms of fixating and exhausting the material by repetition and/or duration. We believe no action can be repeated in exactly the same way. Each movement we give to everyone to use and, as a group, we work on transforming it into something else. We use copying and mutation to create new originals.
