USING THE SKY (2013) - An exploration of Deborah Hay's solo
'No Time To Fly' by Motion Bank
was the first guest choreographer to start work with Motion Bank.
Her score project is based on her existing solo 'No Time to Fly' (2010). In early 2011, the performers Jeanine Durning, Juliette Mapp and Ros Warby were each invited to adapt this score -- first as an individual solo and then into a new trio entitled 'As Holy Sites Go' that was performed in October 2012 at The Frankfurt Lab.

"The online score built upon Deborah Hay's solo "No Time To Fly" and her trio "As Holy Sites Go" holds material developed by approaching her work from three directions. There are visualisations based on data collected from as many performances as possible to look for similarities and variances, interviews with Deborah Hay and the dancers Jeanine Durning and Ros Warby and our own digital performances based on what we learned from the process" Florian Jenett & Amin Weber

Motion Bank Phase Two is evolving in stages. Currently we are improving our on-line annotation and publishing systems (MoSys) for eventual public release to join PM2GO. We are building a network of choreographers, dancers and researchers interested in using MoSys for their own purposes or adding resources to Motion Bank. We are organising Choreographic Coding Labs in collaboration with new partners worldwide. These Labs bring together creative coders interested in translating choreography and dance into new digital forms. In addition, we are supporting the continued research of the International Education Workgroup. Sign up for the newsletter to be kept informed.
