»As I imagine it…« - Skizzen zum Tanz

Ausstellung in der Karlskaserne Ludwigsburg

  • 26.03. – 30.04.2021
  • Karlskaserne Ludwigsburg

At a time when dancers are being banned from the stage, we take a look behind the scenes and show intimate sketchbooks that put the first thoughts and drawings for a choreography or dance piece on paper. »As I imagine it...« juxtaposes these initial thoughts with the finished piece and provides insights into the artistic work of dancers who usually choose the body as their material rather than paper. The ephemeral moment of dance is thus translated into an impressive documentation.

The exhibition will be presented simultaneously at the Karlskaserne Ludwigsburg and the KULTUR KIOSK Stuttgart and will be accompanied by performances.
