Emmy Sauerbeck   (1894-1974), dancer, choreographer, dance teacher

Emmy Sauerbeck le professeur, qui a beaucoup inspiré ses élèves – et bien sûr la danse – était une  danseuse allemande Née en Allemagne,  qui a grandi en Angleterre. Ellea dirigé la « School for Movement » à Berne de 1922 à 1974. Né à Londres en 1894, Emmy Sauerbeck a grandi avec deux frères et sœurs. Une représentation de la danseuse Maud Allan, à laquelle elle a assisté avec sa mère, l’avait déjà inspirée dans son enfance. Mais d’abord elle a pris des cours de violon en 1914 à Zurich et la musique sera pour elle un élément fondamental autour duquel elle créera ses chorégraphies . Après seulement un an, elle commence sa formation en danse parallèle au conservatoire de Zurich avec Rudolf von Laban et suit des cours avec Suzanne Perrottet et Katja Wulff.

La formation de Rudolf von Laban a marqué son travail pédagogique: « Rudolf von Laban est le grand innovateur de la danse de notre temps, il a découvert, formulé et rendu fécond pour la danse des lois de l’harmonie et de la mélodie, de sorte que la danse soit au même niveau de développement que la musique en tant qu’art indépendant qui peuvent se confondre les uns avec les autres sans en devenir pour autant dépendant.

Ursula Aeberhard, assistante de longue date d’Emmy Sauerbeck et directrice actuelle de « School for Movement » à Berne, décrit le style de Sauerbeck comme suit: « En plus des balançoires, du suspense – de la détente, de l’impulsion, Emmy Sauerbeck a développé son propre style de danse, qui est extrêmement subtil et différencié. Ses danses étaient souvent basées sur la dynamique et les agogiques de la musique,  » L’intérêt intense de Emmy  Sauerbeck pour la musique la caractérisait, créant ainsi des danses au son de la musique moderne, des danses uniquement à la batterie, des danses absolues sans accompagnement. Elle  choisissait  sa musique très soigneusement, et se consacrait entièrement à son service. Nous étions toujours encouragés à accorder un respect inconditionnel à la musique électronique. Emmy Sauerbeck a donné à nos étudiants quelque chose que nous ne pouvions trouver nulle part ailleurs, elle-même le savait très bien. Cela nous a fourni une base sur laquelle nous pourrions, à notre guise ou pourrons, être en mesure de découvrir ou de construire quelque chose de nouveau.  »

Frieda Gertrude Riess

Riess was born in Czarnikau in the Prussian Province of Posen where her Jewish parents were shopkeepers. At the end of the 1890s, the family moved to Berlin where she first studied sculpture under Hugo Lederer (c. 1907) and later photography at the Berlin « Photographischen Lehranstalt », receiving her diploma in the summer of 1915.

In 1918, she opened a business on the prestigious Kurfürstendamm; it became one of the most popular studios in the city. Partly as a result of her marriage to the journalist Rudolf Leonhard in the early 1920s, she extended her clientele to celebrities such as playwright Walter Hasenclever, novelist Gerhart Hauptmann and actors and actresses including Tilla Durieux, Asta Nielsen and Emil Jannings. While on a trip to Italy in 1929, she was invited to photograph Benito Mussolini. In addition, she contributed to the journals and magazines of the day including Die Dame, Berliner Illustrierte Zeitung, Der Weltspiegel, Querschnit and Koralle

Her success in Berlin was however short-lived. In 1932, after falling in love with the elderly French ambassador in Berlin, she moved to Paris with him, disappearing from the public eye. Even the date of her death cannot be clearly established and her place of burial remains unknown  (source wilkipedia)
