Studio Helander (Ivar Helander) :: Tanssija Martta Bröyer (1897–1979), 1927. | Poem – Vision – Intoxication

Bröyer, one of the pioneers of modern dance in Finland, created her own controversial style, bröyerism, or Bröyer-style in the 1920s and 1930s, in which dance was accompanied only by poetry recitation, an art form that, in it’s time, had a conflicted reception.
From: Poem – Vision – Flush: A dancedramatic series & Poem – Vision – Intoxication: A dance drama series in which poems used by Bröyer meet contemporary poetry and influences from her movement language are integrated into contemporary dance. Venues: Helsinki City Museum and Burgher’s House Museum
