Rainy weekend days are made for visiting the museum and Berlin just offers such a great variety. Since a few weeks the Bode Museum is hosting the exhibition “Canova und der Tanz” (Canova and the dance). This exhibition features works of the Italian neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova. As a special highlight they offer guided tours (approx. 60 minutes long) with a little performance of a corps de ballet dancer from the Staatsballett Berlin (this could have been a little longer in my opinion). The ballet dancer also wears a recreation of the dress worn by the Canovas famous sculpture “The Dancer” and you somehow visualize the whole scenery on how the sculptor created this piece. These tours are limited and you certainly need to book a ticket in advance however the exhibition is also worth a visit without the tour.

So be quick and visit this temporary exhibition. Bikini Berlin Budapester Straße 38 – 50 10787 Berlin What To Wear
When you are commonly surrendered by dancers it just instantly becomes normal that their body type is so much different from other people. However I know that this is not normal for the majority of you and therefore I really admire Rick Guest for creating this unique book + exhibition. In his book What Lies Beneath Rick Guest portraits dancers from different, European ballet companies and captures the brutal beauty of dance. The image of ballet dancers is constantly changing and books like this really emphasize this. Ballet dancers have finally risen to the statues of an athlete. One minute on stage takes a whole life of dedication, desire, passion, pain, willpower and endless hours of practice. The audience just sees the glorias moment but what it takes is far more than that. The first round of prints is limited to 1000 copies. Buy it here. And the exhibition will open on the 22nd through to the 31st of January 2016 at the Hospital Club Gallery in London’s Covent Garden (10am – 6pm / open to the public).
Sometimes, we come across artworks that are quite fascinating so we want to share them with you. One of these is Dustin Yellin’s exhibition at the Lincoln Center: Psychogeographies @ New York City Ballet. I think the exhibition is absolutely unique and captures a dancer’s movements but also incorporates a dancer’s feelings and mind during a jump, turn or any other dance move.
