Deborah Hay


In the context of RE-Perspective Deborah Hay

In the symposium concluding this year’s retrospective, Deborah Hay says goodbye to Berlin with “A Lecture on the Performance of Beauty”, and looks back on the presentation of her works in conversation with Gabriele Brandstetter. In a lecture and in dialogue with some of Hay’s performers, Kirsten Maar makes connections with the legacy of dance history. David Young and Peter Humble present the world premiere of their poetic film documentary “Deborah Hay: alignment is everywhere”. Last but not least there will also be an opportunity to see the community piece “Exit” in a revival after a very long time by 20 Berliners.
