Starting with the feeling of being pushed backwards by recent reactionary backlashes, "Moving Backwards" explores resistance practices, combining postmodern choreography and urban dance with guerrilla techniques and elements of queer underground culture. A film installation with five performers from diverse dance backgrounds complicates the notion of backwards movements and their temporal and spatial meaning. Parts of the walks, solos and group dances are carried out backwards, others are digitally reversed, creating doubt and ambiguities for the installation on the whole. In an environment that the artists call an abstract club, the uncanny experience of temporal and spatial insecurity is complemented by a moment of reflection on the planetary politics of "Moving Backwards" with letters written to the audience in a newspaper by a number of artists, choreographers, activists and scholars.
