Auf der Suche nach Isolde

Searching for Isolde

Barbara Windtner
Director Barbara Windtner sets out together with the dancer Ulrike Hager in search of the choreographer Isolde Klietmann, a dance pioneer in the interwar period in Linz. From Maribor to Linz and Vienna and then all the way to Argentina, they follow the traces of the unusual artist and teacher, who had to flee Austria together with her Jewish husband when the Nazis came to power. In her new home country – first in Buenos Aires, then Mendoza near the Andes – she was able to continue her career, however. Isolde’s great-niece Monika Klietmann goes along on the journey, inspired by the idea of searching for Isolde’s former pupils and bring her dance to life again on the basis of their memories. A dance-road-movie that playfully traces the path of the life of an artist, who was able to inspire her surroundings throughout her lifetime.
