Christoph Winkler

Abendliche Tänze – Ein TANZFONDS ERBE Projekt


Production Details / Press Releases

One title, three choreographers: Christoph Winkler’s Abendliche Tänze deals with the process of remembering the eponymous pieces by Mary Wigman and Tom Schilling. As a continuation of these works and in collaboration with an international cast of dancers, he has developed a third piece that follows its own subjective logic and reveals itself in the piece. In the search for forms of artistic examination of historical works beyond reconstruction: memory as an active attempt to see the world in a new light.
