    Panel discussion

    Since 1991, euro-scene Leipzig has brought together the »who’s who« of dance and theatre in a festival that has now become an institution – despite all of the difficulties at the beginning: after the Fall of the Berlin Wall, the drive for complete freedom was followed by the disorientation of »everything is possible«. Did that cause art to fall back into its playful initial condition of functionlessness? And how does dance work today, 25 years later, on the volcano of »Hotel Europe« in a sea of refugees, surrounded by the chaos of war and failed states in which movement means escape and not dance?

    Together with four well-known artists who are intimately familiar with euro-scene Leipzig, these questions will be answered, also on the basis of their personal experiences.
