zwischenORT – a FilmEssay

Erbstücke Film 2022/23

The Albert Theater, once a central theater of Dresden, no longer exists. Built in 1871, appropriated by the National Socialists as the “Theater of the People” in 1936, burned out in the bombing of Dresden in 1945, it was demolished in 1950.

Today, there is a parking lot on the site. A place that exemplarily embodies historical, political and cultural contexts and transformations. In its present appearance as a parking lot, it symbolizes a buried, multi-layered history.

Together with Florian Mayer, Helmut Oehring and Torsten Ottersberg, Katja Erfurth presents a cinematic search for traces in the past and present, which exposes, layers and superimposes historical materials and contemporary dance-artistic confrontations.

On 25.05., there will be an audience discussion afterwards.

Duration: 30 min.
