‘Motivations for Movement’ (2012) is an interview/video-essay on the movement material of the dance-company Emio Greco / PC and the motivations of two dancers in their work.

Simultaneously it is a project about the basic human – and animal – need to move and express oneself. The conversations with Victor Callens and Sawami Fukuoka brought me to make a comparison between the movement material of Emio Greco / PC and some principles of Peter Levine’s theory of the human body and trauma healing, in an essay called ‘Trauma and Trauma Healing. Movement, Dance and Performance‘ (2016).
