A TANZFONDS ERBE Project
For four months, deufert&plischke have been collecting letters from Ber- liners. These letters have all been written to dance: “Dear Dance” has become the recipient of many different memories and experiences. With every letter, a description of a favorite movement – as a drawing or as text – has been attached. These more than 200 favorite movements now form the choreographic basis for a collectively danced celebration. A final ball for the Berlin edition of the project “Just in Time”, accompanied by Alain Franco on the piano, performing his very own musical letter to dance.

Kattrin Deufert and Thomas Plischke (together the artistwin deufert&plischke) live and work in Berlin. Over the past fourteen years, they have realized several theater projects that deal with situations of artistic production and the complex social dynamics and the logistics of artistic processes. Their works reach beyond the scope of dance and theater and focus on individual participation and daily life in artistic events. These works create different artistic environments that suspend the everyday by comprehensively integrating and processing it into art. www.deufertandplischke.net
