We mourn the loss of Raimund Hoghe

The choreographer, dancer, filmmaker and author Raimund Hoghe died on May 14, 2021 at the age of 72. The maxime of the Düsseldorf-based artist was "throw one's body into the fight." The famous phrase by Pasolini describes the core of the internationally appreciated artistic work by Raimund Hoghe. "For me bodies are like landscapes, and, as there are different landscapes, there are also different bodies - and all of them have their legitimation," he wrote. 

Initially, Raimund Hoghe was going to be a guest in Munich with Canzone per Ornella. Due to the pandemic we had to adapt to a film program that he wanted to accompany in an open dialogue with Katja Schneider, professor for dance theory about his life, his work and the subject of age. Now DANCE shows his film Die Jugend ist im Kopf with an introduction by Katja Schneider in remembrance of the artist and as an insight into his complex, rich work.
