What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today RE-Perspective. Deborah Hay


The symposium closes the Tanz im August Deborah Hay retrospective, saying goodbye to Berlin with A Lecture on the Performance of Beauty. She looks back on her monographic presentation in an interview with Gabriele Brandstetter, Kirsten Maar draws connections to the heritage of dance history in a lecture and dialogue with Hays performers, and David Young and Peter Humble celebrate the world premiere of their film documentary about the choreographer. Last but not least, the community piece Exit featuring twenty performers from Berlin will once again be staged after a long time.

In cooperation with “Tanz im August/Hau Hebbel am Ufer”
