Susi & Gabi’s Salon - 100 questions on contemporary dance

Salon by Gabriele Reuter, Susanne Martin

„Susi & Gabi's Salon is a performance format for discussion and exchange between audience and performers - between chaos and plan, play without limits, imprography and choreosation, discovering impossible questions and astonishing answers.“
Susanne Martin & Gabriele Reuter

In this Salon, Susanne Martin and Gabriele Reuter devote themselves to the phenomena of contemporary dance and its working methods; practical, theoretical, with audience participation, and invited guest artists. In this autumn edition the Salon presents the works of the Martin Sonderkamp and Darko Dragicevic, as well as the collaboration between Shannon Cooney, Alicia Grant, Claudia Tomasi and Josefine Mühle.
