"FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND?"

Fotoausstellung - Visuelle Dokumentation

July 1 - August 31, 2012

Foyer im Rathaus Schöneberg
Rathaus Schöneberg (city hall) foyer
John-F.-Kennedy Platz
10825 Berlin-Schöneberg


The exhibition documents the history of
Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre

in association with
International Artists

Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre was founded by Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith, Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith, Lynnda Curry, Ricky Powell and Detlef Bäcker, four American artists and a German colleague, who met in Berlin during 1979 at Theater des Westens and decided to undertake intercultural, interdisciplinary and international productions in dance, theatre, television, workshops, film/video festivals and publications.
This exhibition paints a picture of the activities of various people during their historical contributions to Berlin, elsewhere and hence, the portrait seeks to prevent these undertakings from becoming "Footprints in the Sand?".

Die Ausstellung dokumentiert die Geschichte des
Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre

in Verbindung mit
Internationalen KünstlerInnen

Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre wurde von Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith, Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith, Lynnda Curry, Ricky Powell und Detlef Bäcker, vier amerikanischen Künstlern und einem deutschen Kollegen, die sich in Berlin 1979 am Theater des Westens trafen, gegründet. Sie entschieden sich, mit der Durchführung von interkulturellen, interdisziplinären und internationalen Produktionen in den Bereichen Tanz, Theater, Fernsehen, Workshops, Film/Video Festivals und Publikationen zu beginnen.
Die Ausstellung zeichnet ein Bild der Aktivitäten verschiedener Menschen bei ihren historischen Beiträgen für Berlin und andere Orte, mit der Intention, diese Unternehmungen davor zu schützen, "Footprints in the Sand?" zu werden.
