Dance of All – Movement Choir

Ligna

Description

Can the individual gesture, which succumbs to mechanization, be developed into collective gesture?
In the 1920ies a movement of movement choirs was spreading out all over Europe, masses dancing modern in the way Rudolph Laban developed with dancers like Mary Wigman. As public mass dances they wanted to make everyone a dancer, a political agenda that already defines dance also as a social practice.

Nowadays many public interventions in city space are dealing with dancing masses – time to reflect the ambivalent predecessor. Using the Radioballet concept developed by the Ligna artistic group (Hamburg/Berlin), the audience is invited to remember these movement choirs bodily and performatively.
