"My greatest wish as a child was to become a dancer. Dance was how I expressed myself before I had words. My innermost element" wrote Nelly Sachs to a friend in 1959. Young dancers have joined Sabine Zahn, a choreographer from Berlin, in an intensive, week-long project devoted to the emotional worlds and inner views of Nelly Sachs’ poetry. Text becomes movement, movement becomes space. Accompanied by sound collages and relating closely to the exhibition segments, choreographic miniatures emerge that guide visitors into a world of "inner elements."
