Up until the 1930s Vienna was one of the international centers of modern dance. The Theatermuseum in Vienna presents a large exhibition dealing with the multifaceted, dense, and effervescent dance scene in Vienna in the early twentieth century, contrasting it with drastic contemporary events: the Nazi dictatorship, persecution, and exile. The focus is on dancers and choreographers who pioneered European modern dance, such as Isadora Duncan, Grete Wiesenthal, Gertrud Bodenwieser, and Rosalia Chladek. The exhibition’s companion catalogue contains numerous essays by dance historians, artists, and experts in related fields, and provides a comprehensive overview of the female-dominated modern dance scene and its impact up until 1938. EXHIBITIONTheatermuseum, ViennaMarch 21, 2019 – February 10, 2020
