BA Lecture - Britta Wirthmüller

to imagine an archive where there is none – A Reading

In this lecture Britta Wirthmüller shares her experiences in the attempt to re-live a fraction of the life of dancer, choreographer and pedagogue Ruth Abramowitsch Sorel. As a German-Jewish dancer Sorel had to flee from the Nazi regime and was forced to live in exile in Poland, Brazil and Canada between 1933 and 1957. Britta Wirthmüller’s research about Sorel takes on the form of personal narrative, bodily exploration, re-enactment, archival investigations and visiting geographical sites. While at times there is little factual evidence to be found, imagining that traces exist and can be taken hold of becomes an essential aspect of the research.
