The Movement Analysis Network ‘movA’ is a a space for reflection about research in/about moving, gesture, bodies and culture. The members come from diverse backgrounds, that include art, science, design and scholarship about the body in action. Mainly focused on stage- and interaction-based movements for artistic and design development, the group discusses fundamental issues of knowledge production, methodology, and research strategy. As a think-tank rather than a research group, movA exists as a floating platform with varying participation, locations and working methods.
