Die Pappel im Wind. Christoph Westermeier : Ernst Heimrath

In the organizer's words:

The actor and dancer Ernst Heimrath, who was born in 1905 and died in 1945, has been forgotten in the history of theater. After an unsuccessful engagement as a Charge, he soon began to develop his own choreographies and record them photographically. For the project Die Pappel in Wind, artist Christoph Westermeier approached these photographs and Heimrath's correspondence, which are kept at the Heine Institute, and collaged them with his own works and perspectives. Visitors to the Theatermuseum are invited to explore this forgotten biography in an installative arrangement.

A cooperation between the TMD and the Heinrich Heine Institute and Schumann House of the state capital Düsseldorf
