From Brockton to Berlin
Gespräch, Filmausschnitte & Intervention
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2018
Gayle Tufts is a writer, singer and entertainer who feels at home in a wide variety of genres. Famous for her evenings that do not want to end and her verbal flourishes full of anecdotes, she continues to work today on the revitalization of the classic cabaret form, mixing music, comedy and choreogra- phy. In 1991, the U.S.-American artist was drawn to her new home of choice, Berlin, for the second time – and into the studios of Tanzfabrik on Möckernstraße. She dances, sings, directs and teaches. Gayle Tufts talks about her special combination of language, music and dance while looking back on her time working with Tanzfabrik.
