As one of the first contemporary choreographers in Germany to examine heritage, memory and reconstruction in dance conceptually, Martin’s practice connects with Lucy Guerin Inc’s interest in dance history and record. Since the funding program “Tanzfonds Erbe” there have been interesting developments in Germany concerning this topic and practice. Following on from interest in Jochen Roller’s project in Australia, Lucy Guerin Inc is delighted to invite Martin to engage local practitioners in his process.
