Exhibition and Performances: "Everybody dances. The Cosmos of Viennese Dance Modernism"

© KHM-Museumsverband

During the first third of the 20th century Vienna ranked amongst the most important international centres of Modern Dance. The exhibition, organised by the Theatermuseum in cooperation with the Musik und Kunst Privatuniversität der Stadt Wien (MUK), attempts to inscribe significant female dancers into Vienna’s great historical narrative. It focuses on dancers, choreographers and teachers such as Isadora Duncan, Grete Wiesenthal, Gertrud Bodenwieser and Rosalia Chladek as well as Valeria Kratina, Gertrud Kraus, Hilde Holger and others who were the pioneers for the European Modernism. The show illustrates the variety and concentration of a female-dominated dance scene which was destroyed by Nazi dictatorship, however, was further developed in exile. Threads are spun between the productive and socio-critical spirit of that time and today through enduring movement techniques of Modernism and related topics. Hence, the exhibition, curated by Andrea Amort and designed by Thomas Hamann, concludes with film contributions by Amanda Piña, Doris Uhlich, Thomas Kampe and Simon Wachsmuth.

Dancers from Vienna‘s independent scene and students of the Musik und Kunst Privatuniversität der Stadt Wien (MUK) present Rosalia Chladek’s historic solo works in a new look.
