Ring, Felix RuckertAffectos Humanos, Dore Hoyer

The institute’s data base has been developed in co-operation with the University Bremen and has been constructed to serve the specific needs of research into dance.

It contains information about the archived tapes, about choreographers and their oeuvre, about individual performances, theatres and other institutions of dance.

The data base is continuously updated with publicised data about dance from other archives.

For reasons of copyright, individual users may view the material only on our premises.

Some recordings in our archive need a special viewing permission by the choreographer or author.
