Motuz Group

St Peter’s by the Waterfront, College Street, Ipswich, IP1 1XF

Motuz Group are a great example of the exciting new style of jazz being created by young musicians, Motuz is a ground breaking, exciting and inspirational quartet. Formed from a larger collective of Musicians and Dancers called ‘Motuz Ensemble’, the artists met whilst studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Drawing on experience and ideas from many different projects and genres ‘Motuz Group’ began their inaugural works and explorations in Spring 2019. Notable influences are contemporary dance, classical music, jazz and free jazz improvisatory formats. Innovation is one of the many visions of Motuz Group achieving this through the development of their own artistic language which enhances the equality throughout the performance. Each performance is totally unique with only very minimal basis and scoring compositionally and choreographically for each piece. Audiences will appreciate a new way of perceiving a dance show or music gig and experience an empathetic conversation in motion. Hear the Dance; Witness the Music!

Featuring Petronella Wiehahn (Dance) Mark Hurrell (tenor saxophone), Olly Chalk (keys) and Sam Ingvorsen (bass).
