Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre was founded by Donald Muldrow Griffith, Gayle McKinney, Lynnda Curry, Ricky Powell and Detlef Bäcker, four American artists and a German colleague, who met in Berlin during 1979 at Theater des Westens and decided to undertake the development of “A Complexion Change” through intercultural, interdisciplinary and international productions in dance, theatre, television, workshops, film/video festivals and publications.
This exhibition paints a picture of the activities of various people during their historical contributions to Berlin, elsewhere and hence, the portrait seeks to prevent these undertakings from becoming “Footprints in the Sand?”.
