Vidéodance11 May - 3 Jul 2022
Videodance proposes a programme of films presenting choreographers who largely influenced the history of dance on an international level – from the symbols of Berlin creativity in the 1920s to the effervescence of the contemporary scene.
Presenting: Witch Dance, the iconic piece written and danced by Expressionist dancer Mary Wigman in 1914, proposing a revolutionary choreography, on the floor, drawing on cultures from non-European worlds; the film Tänzerische Pantomimen by Valeska Gert (1925), bringing together several solos by the choreographer that mock the social conventions of her time, and their limits.
The programme continues with contemporary creations: four work videos by Meg Stuart, an artist living in Berlin, who notably collaborated with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt for an in-situ choreography on the building of the old Kongresshalle in the city, and the video Kreatur by Sasha Waltz, a leading artist in contemporary dance who co-directed the Schaubühne, along with Thomas Ostermeier.
