Michaela H. Pašteková was once devoted to the theory of photography. In recent years, he mainly writes about contemporary dance and theater. In his lecture, he will therefore try to connect both disciplines. The starting point will be the genre of theater photography, which shows bodies as fixed points and frozen gestures, but can influence the interpretation of the documented production and allows us to enter theater performances differently. Using concrete examples, the lecture will try to demonstrate what happens when two seemingly different artistic languages intersect - how do they react to each other and influence each other?
