MoC is a transdisciplinary performance collective of artists exploring ritual in composition since 2012. The group practices spontaneous action as a way to experience and share composition and choreography in the moment, continuously seeking a collective consciousness as well as individual presence. They enjoy to conduct ceremonies of necessary transitions for everyone present through awareness of risk and relationship, dialogue and intention, empathy and fake mythologies.
Their performances have taken place at music venues, lofts, galleries, studios, gardens
and could happen anywhere.
