A choreographic expedition through the dance scene of the GDR:

 

When societies change - what remains culturally visible and what is removed from view? Together with international artists from post-socialist transitional societies, Asentić uncovers choreographic concepts and asks about their right to contemporaneity. Did the imbalance of cultural appreciation after the fall of communism devour the East German dance scene - or did its influences go into exile?
