What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today Fabián Barba: A Mary Wigman Dance Evening

Dance

Fabián Barba reconstructs an evening of dance as it might have taken place in the 1930s. As a guide, he uses the programme for Mary Wigman’s first North American tour (1931), during which she presented some nine solo dances from various dance cycles, including Schwingende Landschaft (Swinging Landscape). The explicit theme of the reconstruction is the inevitable modifications to the original and the inscription of modern concepts in the body of the dancer.
