What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today Gerhard Bohner/Helge Letonja/steptext dance project: Zwei Giraffen tanzen Tango

Dance

Zwei Giraffen tanzen Tango by Gerhard Bohner was created in 1980 in Bremen and Berlin. The premiere took place at the Akademie der Künste on Hanseatenweg. The choreography can be interpreted as a contemporary Danse Macabre, a death dance, whose socio-political critique is staged as a surreal ritual. Helge Letonja and his international ensemble from the steptext dance project in Bremen have developed an open dialogue between historical material research and contemporary choreography, whose first segment, on Gerhard Bohner’s work in Berlin, will be shown.
