A very special Life in Movement screening in Stuttgart.

A private screening of Life in Movement took place recently in Stuttgart (Tanja's birthplace) during the 16th international solo-tanz-theater Festival. Invited guests of the Tanja Liedtke Foundation, as well as the young dancers and choreographers taking part in the festival, were very moved and inspired by the film, as they shared in Tanja's creative spirit and the story of how those close to her - in life and in work - experienced the immeasurably difficult task of performing her works following her passing.

inspiring dance  - Australia and Germany

In December 2011, Joshua Tyler, Amelia McQueen and Craig Bary delivered the TLF inspiring dance workshops to 40 university dance graduates from around Australia as part of the 2011 Dance Compass event. Students learnt sections of Tanja Liedtke’s Twelfth Floor, and explored and worked with some of the creative tools used in the creation of this and other Liedtke works.

In March of 2012, Paul White once again spent time teaching excerpts of construct and the duo To My Suite to 3rd year dance students of the University of Frankfurt as well as professional training classes at Tanzlabor_21, which is based at Frankfurt’s Mousonturm. This follows two previous sessions in 2010 when Paul and Kristina Chan worked with students on similar material. In May this year, Paul will return to Frankfurt to re-rehearse the students in the works, which will be performed as part of their graduation showcase.

Imploded: une reverie romantique by Tanja Liedtke presented in Germany

In February 2012, Tanja’s work Imploded: une reverie romantique was presented in Ludwigshafen and Saarlouis in Germany, by the Scottish company David Hughes Dance. Tanja was commissioned to create Imploded by David Hughes in 2007, and it had its premiere in Edinburgh on the same date as construct premiered in London - 17 May 2007. The Tanja Liedtke Stiftung was very pleased to be able to support the presentation of this work.

Black Project 1. Antony Hamilton premiere

In 2009, Antony Hamilton began the first stage of his development of Black Project 1 during his Berlin residency as the recipient of the inaugural Tanja Liedtke Fellowship. On 8 March 2012, this work premiered in Melbourne as one half of a double bill (with collaborator Melanie Lane) called Clouds above Berlin.
“Hamilton's Black Project 1 excels, not only in terms of movement development, but in overall aesthetic concept. … demonstrating his unique sense of rhythm within a defined scope of movement and design”. Jordan Beth Vincent, The Age, 9 March 2012

“Hamilton’s work is ingenious and extraordinarily inventive in its conception and awesomely disciplined in its execution”. Chris Boyd, The morning after: Performing Arts in Australia (blog site).

Thank you and warm wishes to all our supporters,
