About Toy Ballerina:

Marion writes: What is in an image? What do we see when we look at dancers? Those and similar questions have occupied me ever since I came across the ‘toy ballerinas’, Marie Taglioni and Fanny Elßler as cut-out paper dolls. I try to use these images as documents that make an understanding of the past possible: there might not be an easy answer as to what they mean and what kind of messages they convey. But they stand at the intersection of revolutionary changes in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries; they are manifestations of the ideals that bourgeois societies formed, tested, dismissed and reformed. In short, the ‘toy ballerinas’ are symbols of modernity, symbols of modern technology, modern social relations and of modern ambiguities.

About Marion Kant
From the age of 14 Marion Kant danced with the Komische Oper, Berlin, under the choreographer Jean Weidt. At the Komische Oper she also worked as a dramaturge. Ms. Kant has taught at higher education institutions in Germany, Great Britain and at the University of Pennsylvania; presently at the University of Cambridge where she is Director of Studies for German Studies. Marion has written extensively on the culture of the Weimar Republic, exile from Nazi Germany, Nazi ideology in the arts, and on opera and dance works and choreographers. Her dance historical research has focused on romantic ballet in the 19th century, education through dance in the 19th and 20th centuries, concepts of modern dance in the early 20th century and dance in exile.

In 2001/2002 Marion was a fellow at the Centre of Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. In the past years, together with musicians Marshall Taylor, saxophone, and Sam Hsu, piano, she has presented a concert series in the United States and in Austria remembering “entartete Musik”, music banned by the Nazis in 1930s Germany.
