This event has ended.

A leading figure in contemporary German dance and former disciple of expressionist dance pioneers Mary Wigman and Pina Bausch, Susanne Linke returns to Japan for the first time in 16 years. In this event Linke will explore the groundbreaking work of Dore Hoyer, a figure that has been a major influence on her career, through 3 works. The solo dance “Afectos Humanos” was premiered in 1987 and recreates Hoyerʼs famous 1962 work of the same name. The duets “Affekte” (1988) and “Effekte” (1991) are based on Spinozaʼs “Ethics,” which was also a source material for Hoyer. Each of the three dances has their own character yet all variously explore themes of emotion. Here Linke will also reconstruct her own work and pass it on to younger dancers to perform for the first time. As such, this homage to both Linke and Hoyer mediates the archive of dance history to open up new dance horizons.
