Performance Rani Nair
"What you take, shall be lost to you - what you give, will remain yours forever”. The German choreographer Kurt Jooss created his last piece Dixit Dominus for the Indian dancer Lilavati. Rani Nair inherited this piece in 2003 after Lilavati's death by her husband. Since then, Rani has asked herself different questions: How can a piece created in the seventies be danced today? What does it mean to be responsible for a piece of dance history? She recently performed Future Memories at Dansstationen in Malmö and Lunds Konsthall in Lund, Sweden. This writing was first published in the Art Magazine Ful in 2010.
