Dance, Pilgrim Dance (Kasia Wolinska / Art Stations Foundation)
Dance for socialism! Even if the parquet probably doesn’t leave our comrades much room for free expression. Kasia Wolinska wants to know about this and reminds us of an historic encounter: Isadora Duncan and the USSR – The Revolutionary. On the basis of her reconstruction of three pieces of choreography by the U.S. dance icon, history becomes more contemporary than ever before.

In addition, music, visual arts, and theoretically oriented discursive events are core components of the diverse schedule of programming. Instead of relying on a permanent ensemble, HAU both develops and presents international co-productions, festivals and projects realized within and beyond Berlin’s international dance and theater community.
