Dresden is a city of Dance culture. Not only did the famous German dancer and dance teacher Gret Palucca work here and still leaves traces in the form of the prestigious dance school named after her. The city’s theatre Festspielhaus Hellerau which was conceived by Swiss music teacher Émile Jaques-Dalcroze in 1911 has also a long history in providing a domicile for ambitious contemporary Dance projects. One of such is the Go Plastic compagnie which is led by local dancers Cindy Hammer and Susan Schubert. On the occasion of the premiere of their latest production “Go West, Young Men” on 11 December 11, 2015 Philipp invited them to the studio. Accompanied by the two dancers Christian Novopavlovski and Jared Marks the two dramaturgs talked about the new piece and the dance scene in Dresden in general.
