Since the end of March, the exhibition “Alles tanzt. Kosmos Wiener Tanzmoderne” [Everything is dancing. Cosmos of modern Viennese dance] at Vienna’s Theatermuseum has been paying homage to a series of outstanding dancers who blazed a trail for European Modernism. Among them Hilde Holger, whose daughter Primavera Boman-Behram traveled from London to attend the opening of the exhibition with the support of the Jewish Welcome Service.
In the first third of the 20th century, Vienna was one of the international hubs for modern dance. The exhibition, which was put together by the Theatermuseum in cooperation with the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna (MUK), commemorates Hilde Holger as well as other dancers, choreographers and educators such as Isadora Duncan, Grete Wiesenthal, Gertrud Bodenwieser, Rosalia Chladek, Valeria Kratina and Gertrud Kraus.
They were all part of a dance scene that was destroyed by the Nazis and later developed in exile. Accordingly, the exhibition, which is curated by Andrea Amort and designed by Thomas Hamann, displays numerous interrelations and influential developments between the socially critical spirit of then and now. The exhibition is accompanied by a diverse performance program. The exhibition runs until February 10, 2020. (Source: Theatermuseum)
