With the combination of archive and professional production, the German Dancefilm Institut is a unique institution in Europe.

We create productions for TV-stations about current events in dance and features about specific themes of dance. Editors and film-makers use the archive for their reports on dance. Apart from video-documentations for companies and choreographers, the institute also creates multi-media and print productions.

Most of the institute’s productions are available for non-commercial usage as VHS-copie or DVD for a fee.

The German Dance Film Institute is a document archive, in which the stocks are only available on site. Other potential uses arise after consultation with rights holders for specific inquiries. 

Peace pain

Dreharbeiten Dienstagscompany Bremen, Schnürschuh-Theater D 2023

We are all waiting for infinite peace. We all hope that inhuman, violence- and terror-spreading regimes will collapse. We fight with ourselves against resignation and fatalism. The small human being, individual and citizen of the world at the same time, lives his or her own everyday life with various coping strategies.
The performers in this associative dance theatre piece lean on personally chosen great figures in order to find parts of freedom and peace in them. Within this framework, the production reclaims courage and strength to overcome one’s own hopelessness.

The performers of the Tuesday Company (developed from the dance theatre course) have dealt with these current themes.

Choreography: Marion Amschwand

Life is performance and to enter the world is also to enter a stage. In times of isolation, this stage does not exist, we are alone with ourselves and hardly enter into a relationship with other people. The game is paused – we are completely ourselves. But how much of this human being is actually visible in our public performance? In “undressed”, the dancers of tanzbar_bremen make themselves beautiful for the world and consciously enter the theatre space as a space of possibility, as a space of staging. Only gradually do they try to shed the layers of representation to reveal a glimpse of that which also wants to shine through. How much of a role should and do I want to play? What do I reveal?

There is hardly a dancer and choreographer of her generation whose work has been so comprehensively documented on film: Heide-Marie Härtel accompanied the career of 2022 Dance Prize winner Reinhild Hoffmann with her camera from the very beginning. Whether in the training hall at the Bremen Theatre, at the now legendary “Solo mit Sofa” at the Concordia Bremen, at the Folkwang Tanzstudio, at guest performances at home and abroad with the Goethe-Institut and later at her opera productions, filmmaker Härtel was there and recorded the performance.

 

Now the circle is complete: at the German Dance Film Institute in Bremen, the video recordings of Hoffmann’s life’s work will be digitised and thus secured in the long term for future dance makers and dance enthusiasts. For over a year, Reinhild Hoffmann and Heide-Marie Härtel will regularly sit down together to add more detailed information about the individual recordings to the database of the Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut.

 

This project is funded by DIS-TANZEN SOLO, a project of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland e.V. within the framework of Neustart Kultur of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.

As part of the series DANCE:DIGITAL II [Making Of], cultural journalist Claudia Henne interviews Tobias Staab, choreographer and author of the project “Autonomous Avatar. An immersive Dance Experience”.

 

How much longer will we be able to control the technologies we have created? This is the question that choreographer Tobias Staab wants to explore in his project Autonomous Avatar. The dancers perform in the unusual and fascinating venue of the Bochum Planetarium: thanks to motion-capture suits, their movements generate video installations along the dome of the planetarium, depicting their digital avatars, which become more and more human-like. An ambitious project, which questions how technologies are shaping our perception of what is alive and what is not.

In Talk2Me4D, Wayne Götz and Lucy Flournoy, both physical theatre performers, want to explore the possibilities and limitations of artificial intelligences such as GPT-3 and Amazon’s Alexa. Beside interacting with them on stage, they also create an immersive, fourth-dimensional, exquisitely entertaining version of the performance, that the public can experience with VR glasses. The project liberates new technologies from a dystopian imagery, reminding us that play is at the basis of every artistic experience.
