The undo, redo and repeat project examines five dance positions of the 20th century. How does dance history influence an artist? The project restores fragments of the legacies of several major personalities, their knowledge, experience and approaches to choreography. It captures the delicate essence of their distinctive heritage that can be found only in ever shifting memories.
Mary Wigman, Kurt Joss, Dora Hoyer, Pina Bausch and William Forsythe – fountains of endless inspiration and guidance. On screens we listen to the reflections of personalities who knew their work in depth, whether as dancers or assistants. All this is the inspiration of Christina and Anna for their own interpretation.
