Spotlighting the distance between Laban/Jooss and Wigman, the central question appeared to be: Did the future of dance lie with the Ausdruckstanz, which repudiated classical ballet altogether, or with the dance-drama which incorporated aspects of ballet as championed by Jooss and Laban’s expressive movement methods to create a new entity? Kurt Jooss (1901–79) – born in a village near Stuttgart to a farming family of landed gentry.
RETURN TO RITUAL ON THE MOUNTAIN OF TRUTH In 1913, Nolde encouraged Wigman to travel to Ascona, Switzerland, to enroll in Rudolf von Laban’s Schule der Bewegungskunst, his summer school for the movement arts. Nolde had recognized that Laban’s ideas about the possibilities of dance expression reﬂected Wigman’s own. Laban’s school ﬂourished in the Alpine community of Monte Verità near Lago Maggiore. Founded as an experiment in the Lebensreform or life reform movement, those who sought to create a culture of artistic freedom at Monte Verità also espoused sexual freedom and feminism and rejected conservative ideas of respectability and hierarchical social order.
This book represents one of the ﬁrst attempts to clinically analyze and value such work. Wigman found that she had many ideas in common with Prinzhorn, who was a strong inﬂuence in her philosophical and aesthetic thinking as well as her domestic life. The two remained friends even after the romance ended; after his death in 1933, Wigman kept a death mask of Prinzhorn in her home for many years. And he helped to form that home in ways beyond his lifetime. In his Heidelberg practice, Prinzhorn had employed Anni Hess as assistant and housekeeper.
