Performing Trauma. Valeska-Gert-Gastprofessur Nora Amin
Egyptian choreographer, dancer and writer Nora Amin, the Valeska Gert guest professor, focuses on the subject of dance as a medium of political resistance, transformation and healing. With Dance Studies students from the Freie Universität in Berlin, she examines the physical expression of traumatic experiences and performative practices of reenactment and representation. Jointly developed choreographies openly address trauma and its aftermath, in aesthetic transformations that deal with attachments, transcendence and empowerment.
