Visible Undercurrent, the piece by Peter Pleyer traces the developments in dance and its dispersions in the 1980s and 90s into the present. A new generation of dancers and choreographers is now making its presence felt in Berlin, one which deserves to understand its history. Visible Undercurrent, with its dancers from Berlin and New York maps out the influences and pathways in the contemporary dance world, and shows how they are interwoven in personal stories, politics and history. During the rehearsal process the dancers are confronted with historical material and methods to explore physical and conceptual freedom, creating possibilities for little explored structures of choreographic practice. In dialogue with the past, lost inspirations and undercurrents have been rediscovered and made available for the future.
