TANZGRUND: Ein Film über Boris Charmatz’ [terrain] – Public Viewing

With [terrain], the choreographer Boris Charmatz sketched the outlines of a future cultural institution at the Theater Spetkakel 2019. This was a format that the pandemic has made even more realistic: a dance centre outdoors on the Landiwiese, ephemeral and anchored in the local community. From workshops and a symposium on the conditions of future cultural productions, to solos and a project with 20 dancers, different formats have explored the idea of a cultural institution without a permanent building. César Vayssié documented the 18-day project. «TANZGRUND», the resulting film is presented during this year's festival in a public viewing and as a stream. (mvh)
