This installation focuses on the already 40 years of development of Contact Improvisation and its connection to other movement forms and specific ways of working. It is an attempt at creating a LivingArchive and researches the question: how can archival material be used for dance creation, unusual formats for presentation, and ways for transmission of dance?
This installation also reveals part of the research process of The Live Legacy project which started in Summer 2012. With interviews done in Germany, Holland and in the USA, inviting artists, teachers, institutions and scholars to share their legacies. We believe that through their personal stories and personal archives history is being created.
A specific aspect of this project is the collective approach to developing new forms of generating and inter – (and intra!) – seminating embodied knowledge.
