Fascinated by the German dance avant-gardist Valeska Gert (1892–1978), choreographer and dancer Eszter Salamon previously dedicated the performance series The Valeska Gert Monuments to this exceptional artist. In her first film, Reappearance, a manifesto against forgetting, Salamon returns to her subject of choice. The follow-up work, Sommerspiele (Summer Games), is about the 1936 Berlin Olympics, for which choreographers loyal to the regime helped create the opening ceremony, while others – like Valeska Gert – were ostracized or murdered by the Nazis. Both films are interventions in the historical canon. (ImPulsTanz)
