Online Workshop:Writing of a Faun. A Signature Piece of 20th Century Dance and its Scripting
When: Fri, 18.06.2021 2:00 PM until 5:00 PM
Vaclav Nijinsky (1889-1950) is one of the outstanding figures in the history of dance. His choreography “The Afternoon of a Faun”, premiered in 1912, is a signature piece of dance in modernity.
The shape of the ‘original’ choreography, however, was lost over the decades, also because Nijinsky's own idiosyncratic dance writings could not be deciphered until 1989. Since then, numerous restagings and reconstructions have been presented worldwide. The workshop looks at the
intricate interrelations between writing, scripted movement, passing on and performance of this
dance piece over a period of roughly 100 years.
