Christoph Winkler

Dance! Copy! Right?


Production Details / Press Releases

From what point on is a movement really mine and when does this movement become art?

The law only protects movement phrases, but what about the context or if no one is dancing?

What could be the smallest building block of a movement phrase?

Is a single movement comparable to a single note?

Is a true copy at all possible in dance?

How does one and the same movement differ if performed by different dancers?

And what does music have that we don’t have?
