Production Details / Press Releases

Throughout his life, Gerhard Bohner (1936–1992) remained a pioneer who would not settle for aesthetic conventions. In his last work, SOS, which debuted in the upper foyer of the Hebbel-Theater (Berlin) in 1991, he devised a work of precision and reduction, but open to theatrical composition. Jutta Hell and Dieter Baumann now pass down the choreography created for them to the next generation of dancers.
