Choreographer Katja Heitmann (D/NL) operates on the cutting edge between dance and visual art, performance and installation. In her work she explores what moves people in our current era. She is fascinated by the control society and her efficiency-thinking which is currently manifesting. The progressing technology allows people to ‘optimise’ their far-reaching world, as is propagated in transhumanism, for example. Heitmann suggests that this optimisation is threatening certain movements with ‘extinction’. Movements that are not effective, efficient and controllable will slowly but surely disappear.
But are these not the movements that distinguish humans from machines and make humans human?
