DANCE SALON 26: Farewell to Jean Cébron

Filmvortrag | Sonntag, 10.03.2019, um 20.00 Uhr


The dancer, choreographer and teacher Jean Cébron died on 1 February at the age of 94. After Kurt Jooss, he was probably the most influential dance teacher at the Folkwangschule for decades. His students included such well-known dance personalities as Reinhild Hoffmann, Susanne Linke, Urs Dietrich and Lutz Förster.


Jean Cébron was active as a dancer, for example in famous ballet pieces by Kurt Jooss, and as a choreographer, performing with Pina Bausch and others in the 1970s. The German Dance Film Institute has previously unpublished video material from Jean Cébron’s classes, from performances at the Folkwangschule in the 1990s and from his work with the Bremer Tanztheater in the 1980s under Reinhild Hoffmann.


We show clips from the filming and talk to one of his students from the 90s, Professor Doktor STEPHAN BRINKMANN, who has been head of the dance department at the Folkwang University of the Arts since late last year.


Following the presentation, we are pleased to introduce you to a premiere that will be shown in the Schwankhalle the following week, on 13.3: SCHLAFWANDLER 1999 / 2019. Choreographed by Helge Letonja in 1999, the same dancers continue the piece 20 years later in a second part. Ziv Frenkel and Anne Minetti are present at the Tanzsalon. (Premiere 13/3, further performances 14 and 16/3)
