Ein Film von Yanitsa Genova mit Hugo Garbrecht
Video-Produktion Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut Bremen Bremen D 2023

What is the TaFi for you? This question is at the centre of the short film “A Day at the German Dance Film Institute Bremen” by Yanitsa Genova and Hugo Garbrecht. The diverse answers of the permanent, freelance and voluntary staff of the German Dance Film Institute Bremen convey a vivid impression of the spirit of the institute. The internally used abbreviation TaFi for the institute is explained in passing.

Yanitsa Genova came to Bremen as a volunteer from Sofia/Bulgaria as part of the European Solidarity Corps. Hugo Garbrecht is completing a Voluntary Cultural Year here. Both are involved in filming and editing at the German Dance Film Institute.

Gardesn of Culture Gardens of Culture. Visions and experimental projects for a future (conference)

Veranstaltung KOÏNZI-DANCE e.V. Hamburg, Warburg Haus D 17. + 18.11.2023

 

“It is in times of dissolution, of change, of reorganisation, of social and national rebirth, that the tendency to wander into the land of nowhere, which in Greek is called Utopia, is at its liveliest. ” (William Morris, 1890)

From 1918, after the horrors of the First World War, many people sought social reforms that would prevent wars from happening again. They drew up utopias and some philanthropists, most of whom were extremely financially strong, boldly and courageously set about implementing the models they developed in order to make humanity more peaceful. They created new and sheltered societies within society in remote areas and gardens with historic buildings, where they staged their ideas as beacons of humanity and democracy, sometimes at gigantic expense. They drew on the philosophical and educational concepts of Robert Owen, John Dewey and William Morris and the Eastern spirituality of the artist-philosopher Rabindranath Tagore. They started out free from state funding and therefore also free from censorship. Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst’s Dartington Hall and Raymond Duncan’s projects in Albania and Paris are historical examples of this.After 2022, the time after the outbreak of the Ukraine war and the associated global crisis awareness, these projects themselves no longer exist in their original forms, but their far-reaching effects and comparable ideas are unfolding anew in surprisingly similar remote locations, for example the Performing Arts Forum in St. Erme between Reims and Paris in France and O Espaço do Tempo in Montemor-o-Novo in southern Portugal.

All of the sites have already had cultural and historical significance and are located in former fortresses or monastery walls on extensive natural sites. The conference deals with these currently overlooked “Gardens of Culture”, which are barely present in the current narrative, between hope and failure, failure and hope.

Cicatrices - Narben der Erde. Photo: Marianne Menke young artists celebrate 20th anniversary | new production “Cicatrices-Scars of the Earth”
Jubiläumsproduktion mit young artists, Peques, LAB, Les Amis de la Danse
Dreharbeiten young artists | steptext dance project Schwankhalle Bremen D 16. - 19.11.2023

 

The anniversary production will celebrate its premiere on 18 November, exactly 20 years after the first young artists premiere. It will be a joint dance evening with all the groups that Augusto Jaramillo Pineda and steptext have built up under the young artists label in recent years (children, teenagers, young adults). This time, too, the theme will be one that is important to the young dancers: the rights of the earth. Under the title “Cicatrices – Scars of the Earth”, the central theme will be developed further and the complex interaction between humans and nature will take centre stage. Marion Amschwand, who choreographed the young artists’ very first production “Missing” in 2003, will rehearse with the young people, while dancer, choreographer and former young artist Viktor Braun will rehearse with the young adults. Of course, Augusto Jaramillo-Pineda, choreographer and director of the young artists, who leads the children’s group, will also be there. Together with the senior citizens Amis de La Danse, an evening of generations will be created that will unleash the full power of dance theatre.

To mark the anniversary, there will also be a broad workshop programme for all age groups (17, 18 and 19 November) and a school performance on 17 November at 11 a.m., which can also be combined with a workshop if interested.

The production is supported by the start Jugend Kunst Stiftung Bremen

Wandering Mind. Folkwang Tanzstudio. Foto: Ursula Kaufmann German Dance Award 2023 – Grand Dance Gala and Award Ceremony

Dreharbeiten Dachverband Tanz Dceutschland Aalto-Theater Essen D 14.10.2023 um 18.00 Uhr

The Dachverband Tanz Deutschland invites you to a multifaceted dance gala on Saturday, 14 October at 6 pm at the Aalto-Theater Essen. The diversity of dance will be celebrated with a varied programme and the German Dance Award 2023 will be presented. Guests include the Ballet of the Semperoper Dresden, the Tanztheater Wuppertal, the Aalto Ballett, the Staatliche Ballettschule Berlin and the Folkwang Tanzstudio.

The events are offered with audio description (AD) and translation into German Sign Language (DGS).

PROGRAMME
The Staatliche Ballettschule Berlin will open the dance gala with “Better, Faster, Stronger”, choreographed by Giorgio Madia. The 6th to 9th year students dance full of energy to the music of Daft Punk.

The Semperoper Dresden ballet will enrich the evening with two duets. With “FAUN(E)”, choreographer David Dawson has developed an abstract, timeless and modern creation that explores questions of duality, sexuality and identity. “White Darkness” is Nacho Duato’s choreographic reflection on the impact of drugs and their effect on human social behaviour

With “Sense of Wonder”, choreographers Lisa Rykena and Carolin Jüngst create an expedition scenario and appeal to the willingness to marvel. An excerpt of the piece will be shown as a video.

The Aalto Ballet will be performing “Mutual Comfort” on its home stage. In “Mutual Comfort”, choreographer Edward Clug captivates with his very individual movement language. Four dancers try to give each other “mutual comfort”. But any form of contact between them seems doomed to failure.”Wandering Mind”, choreographed by Renate Graziadei, is all about associations and moods that arise when thoughts wander. The Folkwang Tanzstudio will show a part of it – melancholic, absurd and mysterious.The Tanztheater Wuppertal and its dancers will be guests with a collage of Pina Bausch’s works. Excerpts from “Full Moon”, “… como el musguito en la piedra, ay si, si, si …” and “Kontakthof” will be performed.

Lutz Förster, one of the winners of the German Dance Award 2023, will dance a solo from “Nelken – Ein Stück von Pina Bausch”.

During the Dance Gala, the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland will present the German Dance Award 2023 to Malou Airaudo, Josephine Ann Endicott, Lutz Förster and Dominique Mercy. The laudatory speech will be held by actress Mechthild Grossmann. The visually impaired performer Sophia Neises receives an honour for outstanding development in dance. Dance teacher Peter Appel will be honoured for his life’s work.

Further exciting contributions complete the varied programme.

Foto: Ursula Kaufmann A life for dance. Ulrich Roehm celebrates his 90th birthday
In Abwandlung eines Zitates von Loriot gilt für Ulrich Roehm: "Ein Leben ohne Tanz ist möglich, aber sinnlos."
Video-Produktion Ulrich Roehm Essen D 16.09.2023

The German Dance Film Institute Bremen congratulates Ulrich Roehm on his anniversary with the specially produced film “A Life for Dance”. The festive event and the video were echoed in the specialised press. Here you can read excerpts from Online Merkur and tanz.at.

“What you want to ignite in others must burn within you.” Who else would this quote from St Augustine be more fitting than Ulrich Roehm – although the fire for dance has been burning in his heart for decades and he has ignited the joy of dance in many other people. No one else has brought dance to the world like him and subsequently brought the dance world to Essen. And no one else has done as much for dance and dance education as he has and, thanks to his constant persistence, has made many things possible. It is impossible to name everything that Ulrich Roehm has initiated, founded and established in his extensive work.

 

Almost to the day – he was born on 14 September 1933 – Ulrich Roehm celebrated his 90th birthday last Saturday with a big party in his hometown of Essen. Numerous friends, companions, dancers such as Birgit Keil and Vladimir Klos as well as dignitaries and representatives of the media and his family joined the celebrations.

 

Ulrich Roehm opened the festive gathering with a short speech and the film “Ulrich Roehm. A Life in Dance” was shown as a world premiere and spanned a wonderful arc over his private and professional life. Among the guests were the former President of the German Bundestag, Prof. Dr Norbert Lammert, and the Lord Mayor of Essen, Thomas Kufen, both of whom also gave speeches – as did Michael Freundt, Managing Director of Dachverband Tanz Deutschland e. V., who brought a message from the Board of Directors to mark the milestone birthday. There were also video congratulations from the Royal Academy of Dance in London. In a short interview, Heide-Marie Härtel then asked unprecedented questions of the jubilarian, who is not only celebrating this memorable birthday this year, but also a number of other anniversaries.”

Ira Werbowsky

Excerpt from an article in Online Merkur – Die internationale Kulturplattform. From 21 September 2023

 

“A film by Heidemarie Härtel was at the centre of the 90th birthday ceremony, which told the story of her personal and professional career in a loving and informative compilation of archive material and interviews. The touching impressions that the film left on all those present were then deepened in a discussion.”

Peter Appel in jungen Jahren. Peter Appel receives German Dance Award for his life’s work
Das Deutsche Tanzfilminstitut produziert Kurzfilm zur Preisverleihung.
Video-Produktion Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut Bremen Bremen | Essen D 14.10.2023

 

“Not only do ballet masters often reach an advanced age, they often work much longer than they should. Peter Appel is one of them, a later famous descendant of the great ballet masters of 18th and 19th century Europe, Jean Georges Noverre, Jules Perrot, Auguste Vestris and Marius Petipa. He will be 90 years old on 8 September 2023, and he hasn’t really been retired for very long. In this respect, it is definitely still timely to honour him now, in 2023, with the German Dance Award for his life’s work as a ballet master and training director.” Frankfurter Allgemeine 8 September 2023 Link to the FAZ article

 

Sabrina Sadowska, ballet director of the Chemnitz Municipal Theatre, emphasised as laudator that Peter Appel “(…) always focuses on the human being.” Peter Appel was a big step ahead of his time and the dialogue with his students was essential for him.

 

The German Dance Film Institute Bremen is producing a short film about the work of the ballet master to mark the presentation of the German Dance Award to Peter Appel. The film will premiere as part of the Dance Gala on 14 October 2023 at the Aalto Theatre in Essen.

Tutorial on subtitling films with the help of AI [WissensWandel. Digitalprogramm des dbv]

Filmvortrag Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut Bremen Bremen D 29.3.2023

 

 

 

 

 

This tutorial was created as part of the NEUSTART KULTUR project’s “New Approaches to Cultural Heritage Dance”. It shows how spoken texts in films can be subtitled in another language relatively easily with the help of AI-based software. The translations created in this way are no substitute for professional interpreting, but they are a good first step towards understanding the content of the film commentaries. Dance students from different countries have greatly appreciated these new possibilities during our Zoom Lectures on dance history.
The choice of open source software is now also very large for this purpose. In our case, however, we have realised this mainly with already existing film and text programmes of the institute.

Filmvortrag Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut Bremen Bremen D 29.3.2023

 

The German Dance Film Institute is a presence media library that has been able to test a new pillar of communication with colleges of dance and dance education for the first time through the project “New Accesses to the Cultural Heritage of Dance”. A special feature of archives is that the holdings cannot be viewed off-site and without context with archive staff. This means that knowledge transfer can so far only take place in-house or through specially compiled media libraries, which are shown outside in a narrowly defined framework accompanied by specialist staff. Film collections in particular may not be borrowed, as they are originals with copyrights held by dance and film makers. Due to the pandemic, this fundamental problem came to a head.

 

An important goal of our project was to realise online lectures for universities of the arts with degree programmes in professional dance and dance education. Participating in this inaugural series were the Orot College in Tel Aviv (studying dance education, among other things) and a master class in dance education at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen.

In close collaboration with the respective dance lecturers, Dr. Talia Perlshtein and Prof. Henrietta Horn, 20 dance lectures were created on the topics of “Dance and Politics” and “Solo Dance”. In addition, we have modernised a dance history tool (TGT) in the sense of a visual dance encyclopaedia for lecturers and students and updated its content. TGT is now also accessible in two languages (German and English).

2023-04-23 14_57_11-Tanz-Geschichts-Tool_ Final Version_WW_Präs.mp4 - VLC media player The new dance history tool for teachers and students [WissensWandel.Digitalprogramm des dbv].

Filmvortrag Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut Bremen Bremen D 29.3.2023

As part of the dbv’s WissensWandel funding programme, the German Dance Film Institute has developed a Dance History Tool (TGT) that can be used in teaching and training. Based on the open-source software MediaWiki (known from Wikipedia), the TGT is aimed at dance professionals, dance students, dance scholars as well as young audiences who have had little or no contact with dance in the theatre.

In the first phase, the TGT is being developed.

In a first phase, 400 records with films from the database project DANCE ON DEMAND (DOD) were used. This intranet portal of the National Library was developed in 2004 by the German Dance Film Institute Bremen for the largest library in Asia in Singapore and technically realised in cooperation with the University of Bremen. For technical reasons, the DOD was no longer usable since 2019. The updated texts on the most important stage works, choreographers, institutions and topics of German dance, which are available here again, are regularly supplemented by dance-historical valuable films from the extensive holdings of the German Dance Film Institute Bremen. Currently, over 100 films can already be viewed on the TGT portal.

This new online version of the dance history tool TGT has been tested by lecturers and students and found to be very enriching. TGT is not publicly accessible for copyright reasons. User-defined access rights are managed by the German Dance Film Institute Bremen.

Peace pain

Dreharbeiten Dienstagscompany Bremen, Schnürschuh-Theater D 18.2.2023

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?

Digitalisierung Reinhild Hoffmann/ Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut Bremen Bremen D seit 1.1.2022

 

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.

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.
