Online Screening

Open for Viewing

These are unprecedented times, there is brilliance and darkness.

To support the creativity of Australians living in Germany, the Tanja Liedtke Foundation organised an online, short dance-theatre film festival. Gerlinde Liedtke, Chairperson of the foundation’s Board of Trustees conceived the project:

“We feel it is very important for society to listen to the voices of artists, especially in the kind of conditions surrounding COVID-19. Australian artists in Germany, far away from their homeland, can connect globally through sharing their dance-theatre films.”

Tanja - Life in Movement (2011)


The documentary about Tanja Liedtke, Life in Movement had its world premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival in early March of 2011. The film was produced and directed by the multi award winning team, Sophie Hyde and Bryan Mason of Closer Productions. The film provides an insight to Tanja’s life as an artist, her determination and her love of the language of movement art. The film stands as a testament to the work Tanja created with her close collaborators. As her work tours internationally, her collaborators reveal their memories and process their grief over her sudden death while Tanja continues to inspire through previously unseen interviews and footage of her compelling process.
