A Question of Movement

Henry Montes and Marcus Coates experimented with the role of physical movement in approaching and understanding questions.

Filming members of the public in their homes and places of work, Montes invites them to ask a question which Coates uses as a catalyst to spontaneously approach through movement. Montes mediates between the participants' questions and Coates' subsequent movement so the participant can direct and choreograph Coates to get what they need from his movement. This relationship explored the potential functionality of contemporary dance/movement and its potency as an empathetic language to articulate unconscious reasoning.
