Vis Motrix by CocoonDance creates some strange as well as fascinating beings. The dancers seem to come from another world, they move through space and merge into an organism, a mixture of human being and machine, creating a hypnotic power that one can not escape. What is the driving force, the soul (Vis Motrix) behind the movements of these hybrid beings? Vis Motrix was invited to the Tanzplattform Germany in 2020 in Munich and nominated for "Performance of the Year" in the critics’ survey of the professional magazine “tanz 2019 “by Bettina Trouwborst (Westdeutsche Zeitung): "'Vis motrix' by CocoonDance, Bonn: a work of hypnotic motion intelligence."
