Now and Then

apap production studio berlin · Performance · Premiere by Christina Ciupke, Jasna L. Vinovrški
In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2018

Unfolding temporal perceptions. In »Now and Then«, Christina Ciupke and Jasna L. Vinovrški take a journey back in time, to the beginnings of independent dance. They are looking at the moment in history when dance freed itself from institutions for the first time. They are interested in the gaps and missing information in the historical context which allow them to imagine the spirit of that time. In a collaborative process they will also be stepping into their own choreographic past in order to unfold different temporal perceptions.
