Franz Anton Cramer & Astrid Kaminski

Letters Of ...


approx. 180 min.

What keeps the Berlin dance scene together at its core? Choreographers and experts write letters to one another. The actors Teresa Zschernig and Lara-Sophie Milagro give them a voice.

Correspondence between artists and those close to them has always been a source for unlocking the connections between work and era. Letters provide insights into networks, lines of inspiration, conflicts, impulses and debates, from which working conditions are configured. Often enough, however, we only get these insights posthumously. Can this be changed? Is correspondence, whether by letter or e-mail, a way to dive into the dynamics of the Berlin dance scene, which has developed rapidly over the last 30 years? Dance scholar Franz Anton Cramer and the journalist Astrid Kaminski are trying it out, and have invited artists and experts to write letters to one another.
