against all odds


In a parcours of dance, performative, artistic, theoretical as well as personal contributions – live and digitally – artists and theorists who have accompanied TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA over the past 30 years have reflected on the possibilities of dance and choreography, but also on forms of living together in the future. How can we – against all odds – continue to dance or dance against the circumstances?

Esther Balfe, Jérôme Bel, Jonathan Burrows, Ramsay Burt, Boris Charmatz, Janez Janša, Jin Lee, Lucas Lopez, Àngels Margarit, Anna Mendelssohn,  Jeremy Nelson, Ceren Oran, Moritz Ostruschnjak, Virginie Roy, Ana Vujanović, Frank Willens
