Many facets become visible in the almost 40 portraits of Bremen’s dance practitioners, which were commissioned by the Landesverband TanzSzene Bremen and captured by photographer Marianne Menke.


While looking for a photo setting, Marianne Menke came to the Tanzfilminstitut: together with Heide-Marie Härtel, she developed the idea of using the photo setting at the institute as a backdrop for a personal interview with the respective artist. Together with existing film material from the Dance Film Institute’s archive and supplemented by current film footage from the ballet schools and dance studios as well as rehearsals in progress, the informative series of short portraits was created: “moving faces” show the protagonists in their professional environment.


The result is 36 video clips of about three minutes, which reflect the high level of professionalism, the artistic diversity and the whole range of creative work of dance artists who come to Bremen from all over the world.


The series of short portraits shows the protagonists in their professional environment.


The film clips were realised by the team of the German Dance Film Institute and Médoune Seck.


The video portraits of the participating artists will be online on the homepage of the Landesverband TanzSzene Bremen from 12.12.2021 and can be accessed there under “TanzSzene“.


The team of the German Dance Film Institute Bremen would like to thank all participants for their creative collaboration.
