Based on the work of dancer and theorist Rudolf Lábán (1879–1958) Dancing On My Life focusses on the Austro-Hungarian dance pioneer’s use of choreography as a form of freedom of expression. Working across cataclysmic eras that shook Europe through the first half of the 20th century Lábán’s oeuvre could be considered to be one of an incessant pursuit of Utopia, with the dancer’s sense of the supremacy of art reigning above all else. Teaching dance in Berlin during the Nazi consolidation of power in the 1930’s Lábán, being neither German nor a party member, avoided the outright ideological reorientation of the arts, ‘playing the Regime’s game’ only to the extent that he was able to realise his own goals in dance. Lábán’s search for ultimate freedom thus manifested itself as a deep necessity to deviate from the canon of traditional forms of expression and socio-political norms.
