DADA GERT is an immersive work of dance theater conceived, choreographed, and performed by Annie Arnoult and Open Dance Project. The show is inspired by Valeska Gert (1892-1978), a pioneering Jewish dancer/performance artist/film star in Weimar-era Berlin. Audiences will be integrated into the performance space by walking throughout the site-specific, multimedia set designed specifically for the Moody’s Lois Chiles Studio Theater. Original projections designed by Ryan McGettigan, together with music, dance, and costumes, collectively inspired by Gert’s life and performance career will transport audiences to early 1920s Germany.
