Boulevard wholeheartedly connects with the city and its inhabitants, particularly now. We asked ten makers, whom we’ve trusted for years, to create something especially for ‘Powered by Boulevard’. These projects are made for and sometimes with specific groups from the city. Their progress can soon be followed online by everyone.

How can we preserve human movement? Katja Heitmann researches movements as archive material, as historiography. According to her, the way somebody moves is characteristic for the times we live in – for example for the times before the so-called 1.5-meter society. With her previously existing concept Motus Mori Katja asks people from ’s-Hertogenbosch to donate their movements. Dancers archive these and ultimately present them. This exhibit of choreographic portraits displays an impressive and touching image of humanity.

Join in!
Everybody from Den Bosch can participate in this archive of movement. Do you want to donate your personal movement to the archive? Sign up for a ‘movement interview’, a personal and physical conversation with one of the dancers. The interviews take place on 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 August 2020.
