The independent dance scene that started to form in the 1970s left behind noticeable traces in Munich, as in other cities. It was responsible for and developed new concepts about the theater, movement, and the body. The aesthetic issues and cu ltural politics that were developed at that time and have been the subject of discussion since are still virulent.
How was this scene created? What did it look like? What did it stimulate? Where were its "hot spots" in the city? Who was (and is) active in Munich? What were their artistic concepts? How did they experience the developments within the scene? How did the general public perceive this scene? An exhibition and a podium discussion convey insights into the dynamic past and present of the independent dance scene in Munich.
Concept: Brygida Ochaim, Katja Schneider
