LEAPS IN TIME Dance Theater of Generations by Heike Hennig
Orginal: ZEITSPRÜNGE Tanztheater der Generationen von Heike Hennig
”Leaps in time” is the dance theater with autobiographic elements from the generations of dancers, choreographed by Heike Hennig. This is the new dance-theater according to the film ”dancing with time” and the choreography ”time – dancing since 1927”. This dance-theater is about the exchange between several generations of ballet dancers, which are moving between different energies, ideas and experiences. These dancing moments are perceptible within the different dance techniques. The Ensemble lead by Heike Hennig moves from expressive dance via the classical repertoire until the progressive dance technique of contact-improvisation between dancers. Such spontaneous dance encounters evoke a development in the young and older bodies.
The autobiographical dance-theater “Time – dancing since 1927“ (2005/2006) by Heike Hennig with the four older protagonists Ursula, Christa, Siegfried und Horst was produced by the film-maker Trevor Peters as “Dancing with time” for ZDF, ARTE and cinemas. “Dancing with time“ is also available on DVD and as a book, edited by the author Marion Appelt.
