At many venues in the Gasteig Cultural Center in Munich, in particular in the areas close to the exhibition “Tanz in München – Archiv in Bewegung” (“Dance in Munich – an archive in motion”), dancers will interpret original scores by choreographers from Munich. The result will be a catalogue of movement, dances, and dance techniques created over the course of several days; the catalogue itself will be in motion and its constantly changing constellations will surprise visitors and passers-by. The protagonists are – in addition to the artists from Munich donating material – young dancers who participated in Mia Lawrence’s training labs. The direct connection to the exhibition on the Munich dance scene and the collaboration between the dancers in the contemporary scene establishes a new connection between the historic and the contemporary history of performance.
