Abstract:

The story of the avant garde Tanztheater, past, present, and future, is told here through filmed performances, commentary and interviews with critics and choreographers. Tanztheater, which had its roots in the 1920s and the work of Rudolf Laban, strives to reflect the social and cultural climate of the time using many artistic elements, including dance, drama, and poetry. 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.
