Reinhild Hoffmann and her life’s work [Digitization]

Digitalisierung | 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.
