Pernille Lonstrup
‘‘‘Movement Choir’’’
Takes place at Plein 40-45, Slotermeer, Amsterdam
7 May 2012, 4pm 4pm


Movement Choir is a performance piece built on observations of natural bodily movements of passersby on Plein 40-45 in Slotermeer, Amsterdam on a particular Monday afternoon. Translating these time-located observations into a performance within the same public space, Movement Choir aims to function as a subversive intervention that disrupts the weightiness and rhythm of the current day with one of the past and at the same time, create a space for interpretation and reflexivity of that past moment.
