Touring Exhibition "The Art of Movement"

Especially designed to be presented in highly frequented public places such as railway stations, shopping malls, airports or similar, the exhibition will travel with its own pavilion to each of the three partnering countries, offering to passers-by a more "accidental" approach to Bach's music, dance, and the concept of transnational movements of ideas and therefore reaching a very diverse and broad audience.

Divided into three parts it will deal with the art of movement in Bach's music and his inscription of sounds in a multidimensional space, the art of movement in dance and the connection between dance, body language and composition (Bach was also a great dancer, many baroque dancers were also great musicians) and finally the movement of ideas through Europe and how ideas spread fast across borders even though travelling was limited and cumbersome in Baroque times.

The pavilion will be designed in cooperation with the architectural programme of the University of Applied Sciences in Leipzig (HTWK Leipzig) by students under the tutelage of Prof. Ronald Scherzer-Heidenberger. The content will be developed with the help of all three partner institutions by dance historian Gerrit Berenike Heiter and edited for public space by exhibition designer Laetitia Korte. The exhibition is planned to be ready for travelling in the 2nd half of 2023.
