Dance / Theatre
Through Villa Wigman, Mary Wigman created a dance-historically important place. For two years, the association Villa Wigman für TANZ e.V. not only exposes the monument layer by layer through renovations, but also investigates the history of the place through artistic practice. For that, the association Villa Wigman für TANZ e.V. will be going on a search for traces from 2022-2024 with the artistic series No. 1-3.
Between 22.-24.2.2022, TANZ mit Brüchen will take Mary Wigman’s time from Weimar Republic to National Socialism into focus. In 1920, Mary Wigman guested with a solo evening in Dresden where her novel dance style and the power of her artistic expression was picked up enthusiastically. In the same year, she moved to Dresden, founded her school for dance and celebrated successes in Europe and the USA, where she was praised as the creator of the New German Dance. She danced and taught throughout the time of Weimar Republic into the time of National Socialism.
How did she feel during the 1920s - 1940s as an independent woman? How did she manage to build up international networks from Dresden? How politic was she in her artistic expressions and public attitudes? How is Wigman’s behaviour viewed with regards to societal and personal circumstances? What meaning did Bautzner Straße 107 have for the urban society of Dresden? What drives our dispute with the past today?
