Dance – Text – Media

While many dance scholars would agree to dance’s ephemeral and transient nature as a singular event, “texts”—through concrete words and images—can arguably offer ways to reproduce a performance which a writer or artist actually witnessed; or without a model in mind these media create their own dances. For example, after having witnessed a Spanish dancer’s performance in a Parisian atelier, Rilke later composed “Spanische Tänzerin,” which engages with imagery, poetic form and rhythm to recreate a lived, embodied experience.

Lucia Ruprecht and Susan Manning’s recent New German Dance Studies (2012) has opened new methods of inquiry concerning German Studies and Dance Studies. Building off of these interdisciplinary approaches, this panel invites papers to explore the relationship between dance, text and other media—both broadly interpreted and from 1750 to the present—involving the representation of dance in the works of German, Austrian and/or Swiss writers, artists and, should there be any reference, the movers who inspired their dance depictions.

Concepts of “dance” could include (but are not limited to) traditional western concert dance (ballet, Ausdruckstanz, Postmodern, Tanztheater, or Contemporary), non-western forms (tribal or ritual) and social dance (balls, court dance, folk dance). Similarly, “texts,” broadly understood, might encompass: prose, poetry, plays, critiques, correspondences, journals, libretti, film, and art.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

• The moving/dancing body in German film and art from 1900-1945 (early experimental, expressionist, Nazi)
• Filmic representations of the works of Pina Busch or Sasha Waltz
• Representations of Cabaret or Varieté
• The moving/dancing body in the works of Goethe, Schiller, Kleist, Rilke, Hofmannsthal, Nietzsche, Lasker-Schüler, T. Mann, etc.

Please note that presenters must be members of the German Studies Association
(see for information on membership). No one individual may give more than one paper or participate in more than two public roles.

Please send an abstract (approximately 350-600 words), a C.V., and a specific request of AV needs (if applicable) to Wesley Lim ( by February 2, 2015.
