Moving Isolation

A project by Anna Holter + Company
Dancing is movement, meeting is movement, solidarity is movement - living is movement. But how can one move in a time of isolation?

Moving Isolation is a digital dance project, with dancers from all over the world. It is an attempt to document and describe what we, individually and together, are facing right now. In early April 2020, isolated and quarantined, we decided instantly to meet. Our first meeting resulted in a video clip, released shortly after on social media. Since then we have created six video pieces.

Context

With Covid-19 we are facing challenges never experienced before. Here, in our artistic diary, movement, together with thoughts and reflexions about the lock-down are presented. Each of these meetings are proposing a dialogue and an exchange about the unwished-for situation. We meet “separately” – but we move “together”. Because this is not limited to ONE country, ONE dance company, ONE culture institution, we are all in this together!

Support

This project was made in collaboration with Goethe-Institut Schweden and Goethe Institut Warschau, with support from the Swedish Artcouncil, thanks also to Färgfabriken and Giljotin Stockholm, who let me use their fantastic space and to Alexander De Groot who helped behind the scene.

Awards

Winner of 2020 years Audience Award at the Feel Good short film festival by the Roses UK.
