The Mannheim Pieces / Film Documentation

Didier Théron

In February 2021, an extraordinary digital project took place at EinTanzHaus: With eight dancers from France, Germany and Poland, choreographers Didier Théron and Michèle Murray worked for a week on the theme THE EUROPEANS. What was special about this was that they were not in one place, but danced, spoke and discussed via video conference in Mannheim, Warsaw and Montpellier. But is collaboration possible under these conditions? THE MANNHEIM PIECES summarizes the diverse experiences from this unusual time.
