Subproject 1 – Transcultural Encounters

Subproject 1

Transcultural Encounters

Dr. Hanna Walsdorf

In this subproject all three components of European theatrical dance – choreography, music, and costumes/décor – are to be researched in detail. Using a wide range of material, fundamental questions about this are being systematically applied, ensuring as varied a range of answers as possible. Through empirical, philological, and iconographical analysis of historical documents, current debates on transculturality, materiality, and performance will be engaged with in order to identify theatrical dance as a genre in which political and social identities were negotiated, and constructed images of popular culture created.
