Débords. Reflections on The Green Table

1675 Mal gesehen

Datum der Aufzeichnung: 22.03.2013

Ort: TQW / Halle G


An analytical dance work that takes Kurt Jooss’ piece The Green Table as its starting point.

A Tanzfonds heritage project.

The starting point for Débords is Der Grüne Tisch [The Green Table] – a choreography by Kurt Jooss premièred in Paris in 1932, which owing to its pacifist content and the commitment of its participants in the struggle against the rise of Nazism has become a fixed part of international dance history. In the framework of their long-term research project, the choreographer Olga de Soto collected traces that the work had left in the memories of those who had seen it, danced it and passed it on to new generations: words, bodies and views as material for an analytical and performative approach to the themes of perception, interpretation, remembering and transmission in dance. Together with a group of six dancers, a performance was created that internalised the changing readings of Der Grüne Tisch and at the same time produced something individual and personal. A dialogue between the here and now, a living document of dance history and an indictment of war and its crimes.
