Being Moved

In his solo performance Being Moved Simon Mayer explores different states of "being moved". What moves us? What does it mean to be moved? How can we let go and surrender to the present moment? Together with the sound designer Pascal Holper, Simon Mayer investigates the manifold manifestations of a universal folk dance and finds an answer in breathing - as a necessity and as a practice.

Being Moved is a performance of transgression and transformation that immerses us in the unknown, where breath becomes movement and vice versa. A dance that inspires us to tap into our full expressive potential - based on spontaneous creativity instead of fixed rules -. A dance that explores what makes us move and what moves us. To celebrate our imagination, Simon Mayer shares the stage with (in)visible performers who investigate what we perceive, believe and feel as reality.
