Arthuur is a dance-music-visual meet­ing in impro­vi­sa­tion. The instant hap­pen­ing on stage mate­ri­al­izes on three lev­els: by sound (music), move­ment (dance) and drawn line (graphic reg­is­tra­tion). The mech­a­nism of the search is trans­par­ent: the graphic design­ers attach a small ana­log machine on the back of the dancers. This machine will mechan­i­cally draw a small info­graphic on a sheet of paper. This draw­ing is influ­enced by the move­ments the dancers make. The musi­cians start impro­vis­ing. Their music and the envi­ron­ment will trig­ger the dancers to move. An abstract chain reac­tion has been set off.

Together they focus on the research of how to cap­ture ‘a moment’ hap­pen­ing on stage while shared with an audi­ence. This search is framed into short time chap­ters given by the graphic design­ers accord­ing to when they change the sheet of paper in the Arthuur-machine.
Each movement-music chap­ter has its own reg­is­tra­tion, which is dis­played for the audi­ence and at the end cre­ates a small exhi­bi­tion.
Arthuur is a site-specific project; it likes to react on dif­fer­ent envi­ron­ments and archi­tec­tural and spa­tial definition.
