Christoph Winkler

Taking Steps


Production Details / Press Releases

In “Taking Steps”, Christoph Winkler takes a closer look at the ‘Lifelong Learning’ program initiated by the Unesco und the OECD and applies it to the daily life of dancers: how does learning take place in dance and where does economical contingency reflect itself in daily practice? Or to carry a common metaphor further: If the body is the instrument of the dancer and we are all human capital, then what’s playing?
