Booklaunch! Am kommenden Sonntag um 15h wird unser Buch "Yvonne Georgi" im Tanzarchiv Köln vorgestellt. Georgi, berühmte Mary Wigman Schülerin, war eine beeindruckende Frau und Künstlerin, die selbstbewusst ihrer großen Leidenschaft folgte. Neben einem spannenden Gespräch gibt es ebenfalls eine Tanzperformance. #yvonnegeorgi #tanzarchivköln #wienandverlag #kunstinbüchern #performance #marywigman #köln #choreography #tanzen #20s #goldentwenties

ISSUE #36 DANCE "What the KCA demonstrates, through its support of dance that performs institutional critique, is that interactions and collaborations between reflexive dance makers and institutions are not antagonistic. Rather, there is a cycle of adaptation that takes place incorporating feedback from dance makers in response to the opportunities and demands of the dance field, and vice versa."

Click here to access my article “Where’s the Dancing?”, which is the lead article in Runway – Australian Experimental Art’s special dance issue, edited by Lizzie Thomson. The publication was put together with the support of Carriageworks and the Keir Foundation as part of Carriageworks’ Keir Choreographic Award public programme.
The journal article “Sara Shelton Mann: In the Presence of Action”, orchestrated by Anya Cloud, Karen Schaffman, and Sara Shelton Mann with research and editing assistance from Luke Forbes, was recently published in Contact Quarterly.
Sara Shelton Mann grew up in rural Tennessee. At age 17, arts, politics, and culture collided for her under one roof at Shorter College in Georgia. “I was just a southern hick running away from the people I grew up with. Franziska Boas, a queer German-Jewish woman, a professor who was wanted by the Ku Klux Klan, was my lifeline.” At the advice of Franziska, Sara moved to New York City with $500 in her pocket to study with Alwin Nikolais in order to become, as Sara calls it, “a complete professional.” And she did. At the age of 74, Sara is a blazing force; she is actively and ardently researching, choreographing, performing, and teaching.
