Audio-installation for 100+1-year anniversary of Wigman School
Villa Wigman, former kleine szene and before that Wigman School, is a building full of stories: adrenaline, sweat, fight for the passionate desire for dance. The walls have seen a lot. Stories from the walls have been exposed, thanks to the restorer Sonja Kaeten. But those pieces of experience can only be found out through those people who have dedicated their time to dance, even until today. We interview different contemporary witnesses who tell us about their experiences, observations, activities and sensory impressions in the context of Villa Wigman.
