Marisa Godoy, Richard Wherlock and Julia Wehren
Will ballet save performance art?

Public discussion between Marisa Godoy, choreografer based in Zurich and Richard Wherlock, Director of Ballet Basel. Starting point of this dialogue will be a selection of film documents by artists from Zurich, recorded in the 80ties. By means of discussing the material we will look at dance from a classical as well as a contemporary perspective.

Dr. Julia Wehren, Dance Theorist, will give an input about the history and the diverse esthetical developments of contemporary dance.
