What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today Nur zum Spaß – nur zum Spiel. Kaleidoskop Valeska Gert

Film and Talk

Volker Schlöndorff paid tribute to the 84-year-old Valeska Gert in a late cinematic portrait of the dancer. Her radical position on stage carried over into her life and manifested as an incorruptible standpoint toward political and social demonstrations of power, whether under the National Socialists in Germany or in exile. Valeska Gert influenced women artists in the 1970s more than nearly any other public personality. Media artist Ernst Mitzka and author and musician Wolfgang Müller talk about Valeska Gert with Volker Schlöndorff.
