Dance, one of the oldest cultural practices of mankind, is an expression of elementary emotions: lust for life and happiness as well as grief or sorrow. It can also be an instrument of seduction or violence. Dancing as an art of bodies and space unites visual attraction, discipline, and beauty.
Already at an early stage film transforms dancing rhythms and dynamics through its own means: movements are deconstructed and re-assembled through editing, body details are highlighted, single sequences are underlined in slow-motion. A 'dancing camera' indulges itself into the rhythm of greatly choreographed ballets, balls, shows, and open-air dances. To present the diversity of traditional and modern dance styles is an ongoing challenge for the cinema and its pictures in motion.
The exhibition approaches its subject in five rooms. It visits various dancing sites, shows dancers and tells dancing stories, and locates the art of dance within film genres in which choreographies enchanted transform the world.
Screenings, workshops, and parties accompany the exhibition.
