What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today YES/NO, Manifestos on Dance


In 2017 transcript Verlag published additional publications accompanying the conference Clear the Air”, Künstlermanifeste in Choreografie, Performance Art und bildender Kunst seit den 1960er Jahren (Artists’ manifestoes on choreography, performance art and the visual arts since the 1960s). “No to Spectacle” is the first sentence of what is probably the best-known manifesto on the art of contemporary dance, penned by Yvonne Rainer in 1965. It is the starting point of a discussion with dance studies specialists Gabriele Brandstetter, Katja Schneider, Sabine Huschka and Isa Wortelkamp about how manifestoes were able to affect the performing arts after 1945.
