Inspired by the convenience and immediacy of the familiar photo booth, which captures a private moment in a public space, move-me features a special video booth that invites members of the public to create a short dance. It is a unique opportunity for anyone to explore first hand how different choreographers work - like Rafael Bonachela, Nigel Charnock, Jonzi D, Deborah Hay, Shobana Jeyasingh, New Art Club, Stephen Petronio and Kirstie Simson - and to have an experience of being a performer.

All you have to do is select your choice of choreographer and then, guided by the choreographer's instructions, interprets these to create a unique and instant dance that is filmed/captured on video. move-me then collects and curates these dances and, with the consent of the performer, adds them to an ever-expanding gallery/performance space accessible to all via the Internet at www.move-me.com

The move-me booth will be at FACT from Tuesday 22 January. move-me is co-produced by Goat and Ricochet Dance Productions from an original idea by Simon Fildes and Katrina McPherson.
