In the words of Pina Bausch, Tantztheater is "not how people move but what moves people." Shows archival footage and edited excerpts of modern European dance. Present portions Kurt Jooss' ballet The green table and Pina Bausch's Rite of spring, as well as the work of Rudof Laban, Valeska Gert, Susanne Linke, Reinhild Hoffman, and Dieta Baumann
The makers of modern dance in Germany by Isa Partsch-Bergsohn( Visual )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rare archival films, stills and interviews illuminate the rise of modern dance in Europe and its founders, Rudolf Laban, Mary Wigman and Kurt Jooss. Part I begins with Rudolf Laban, credited with being one of the most important innovators and guiding forces for modern dance. It continues with Laban's two most gifted and influential students, Mary Wigman, who became the foremost choreographer and exponent of German Expressionist dance, and Kurt Jooss, who was Laban's assistant and lead dancer. Jooss later established his own company, Ballets Jooss, with great success until forced to leave Germany for political reasons in 1933. Part II continues with the 1936 Olympics and the cancellation by Josef Goebbels of Laban's massive opening choreographic piece The Spring Wind and The New Joy, and Laban's subsequent fall from favor. World War II finds Jooss and Laban teaching and working in England, while Wigman remains in Germany only to experience the destruction of her school in an air raid. The post-War period focuses on Jooss' return to Germany and the famous Folkwang School; and Wigman's eventual move to West Germany and return to choreography

Survey of contemporary dance in Germany, focusing on Tanztheater and related dance-theater forms such as Johann Kresnik's "choreographic theater." Interviews with prominent choreographers and excerpts from their works contribute to a vivid picture of current thinking and stage practice. Dance critic Jochen Schmidt gives his assessment of the contemporary scene. Also described are influential dancer-choreographers of the past, among them Valeska Gert, Mary Wigman, and Dore Hoyer. The late Kurt Jooss, seen in an interview recorded in 1976, recalls his mentor Rudolf Laban ; his daughter Anna Markard, in turn, contrasts her father's concept of Tanztheater to choreographic works seen today
