  1. For anyone heading to Stuttgart to see Stuttgart Ballet and/or Gauthier Dance in February or March this year - there are a couple of exhibitions in the Stuttgart area in relation to dance that may be of interest. The exhibition “Ecstasy” at the Kunstmuseum in Stuttgart covers ecstasy in dance, sports, youth culture, religion, mythology, etc. As for ecstasy in dance, a number of paintings portray early 20th-century dancers; pictures and videos show e.g., traditional dances and dance in a night club. More information about the exhibition which runs until 24 February here https://kunstmuseum-stuttgart.de/index.php?site=Exhibitions;Current&id=114&bereich=ECSTASY&1538130133. The link also gives access to a detailed brochure that describes some of the works that feature in the exhibition. The Kunsthalle in nearby Goeppingen has a new contemporary exhibition that depicts the interaction between movement/dance and fine art through a mixture of drawings, paintings, sculptures and videos. Contents include Works about dancers (e.g., drawings by Vasily Kandinsky of Gret Palucca) Works created based on the analysis of someone’s movement across space (pencil drawings by Morgan O’Hara – the wider the movements are, the larger the drawing becomes; the more diverse the movements are, the lighter the colour of the resulting work remains – whereas movements that stay within a small area lead to a much darker shade of the same colour. And so … e.g., the movements of dancers of English National Ballet in Act III of Swan Lake lead to a large round-ish form that is filled with roughly the same shade throughout, the wide and flowing arm movements of a conductor lead to a large drawing with many fine lines, the intense focus of a pianist on just a few keys creates a small and very dark, almost rectangular form) Videos that show how dance and movement create art (e.g., the moving arm of a sculpture by Jean Tinguely draws a picture, someone jumps along a wall and the ensuing movement of the person’s arm draws a picture) Recordings of (excerpts of) performances (e.g., Merce Cunningham’s Summerspace, Bruce Naumann’s Floor and Wall positions, a work by Nam June Paik that shows multiple instances of Merce Cunningham, a work by Anna Teresa de Keersmaeker, along with some of her plans for and notations of the work, William Forsythe's Improvisation Technologies, Samuel Beckett's Quad I + II)) There is also a drawing by Vaslav Nijinsky This exhibition runs until 24 March. I saw it earlier today and found it mesmerising.
