May, 2019.


With the support of Pro Helvetia, in partnership with the Goethe Institute and SESC, the contemporary dance research group entitled Motion Bank Lab (Germany) developed a series of actions at Sesc Palladium (BH, Minas Gerais, Brazil), between May 1st and 5th, 2019, as part of its commemorative program for International Dance Day.

Dedicated to researching, documenting and translating contemporary dance practices into digital formats, the project is an extension of Mainz University of Applied Sciences and, under the co-direction of Florian Jenett and Scott deLahunta, focuses on real-time notation and recording of dance moves.

During their stay in Brazil, Motion Bank Lab proposed a collaborative process of visualization and digital documentation of the works «A Projetista» (Dudude Herrrmann), «Bols & Worp» (Dorothé Depeauw, Matthias Koole and Flávia Mafra) and «Parquear Bando» (Margô Assis, Thembi Rosa and Dança Multiplex). The accompaniment unfolded in workshops, presentations and conversations involving national and international artists.

The actions at Sesc Palladium were coordinated by Scott deLahunta and Thembi Rosa and included the participation of Luiz Naveda and Carlos Falci (Brazil), Carla Fernandes (Portugal) and Daniel Bisig (Switzerland).
