Releasing the Archive - Installation: 'Releasing Her Archive' Dance for Screen - Video and Images

posted on 2021-03-24, 21:19 authored by Thomas Kampe

The practice-led project ‘Releasing the Archive’, undertaken in collaboration with dance-scholar Carol Brown (NZ/AUS), aims to re-articulate marginalised modernist exile-dance practices and histories, with reference to the work of Austrian Jewish choreographer Gertrud Bodenwieser (1890-1959) who pioneered Modern Dance in New Zealand and Australia after 1939. It embraces trends towards somatic-informed dance practices, performance-as-archive, and the revisioning of modernist dance legacies.

This item contains documentation of the Video Installation/Film 'Releasing Her Archive' which forms one of the outputs for this project.
