ARGEkultur tanz_house studio


In early 2019 choreographer Julia Schwarzbach and dance historian Anna Leon initiated an open platform for dance- and performance-based reflections on parenthood and co-creations with kids.

This workshop will focus on the notion and experience of (not-only-nuclear) family – what it can mean, which subjects it can include – while at the same time exploring tools for the invention of complementary or alternative modes of relation. We will discuss, move, sketch, read and write, to navigate among emotions, intimacies, beliefs and acts within and beyond the family. The workshop is open to everyone – to parents, to those thinking of becoming parents, to soon-to-be parents, to non-parents by choice, to non-parents by circumstance, to those reflecting on their relationship with their own parents, to those whose sense of family has no link to parenthood, (…) – and requires no experience.


Anna Leon studied psychology and philosophy at the University Bristol (UK) and philosophy of art at the Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne (France). She completed a PhD in Dance Studies at the University of Salzburg (Austria), with a thesis titled Multiple Stories. Expanded Choreography and Choreographic History. In parallel with her research activity, she teaches practice-oriented dance history and theory in various contexts. Since 2018 she collaborates with Julia Schwarzbach as theoretical and dramaturgical adviser.
