International Feature Film Selections Asia Premiere


Switzerland/ 2021/ 79mins/ German & English/ Chinese & English subtitles/ Asia Premiere

A witty portrait of 80 years old German dancer, Beatrice Cordua, alias Trixie, recollecting her life. Unfolding years of creative effervescence, she reproduces her roles on stage, sketches steps and sequences throughout her professional career, retelling dance history of her time encircled by great icons like Pina Bausch, Merce Cunningham, John Cage and more. While her late husband, Ludwig Schönherr, the visual artist, remained an indelible influence. With her voice as with her body, she addresses the intimate topic of her ageing body in a profoundly charming and brutally honest manner. Even if Parkinson disease limits her movements, she proclaims, “My body is still there, mine, with the sadness and vulnerability it reveals.”

Not suitable for young persons and children
