A Rhythmic Archive: Suzanne Perrottet

From the personal archive of the late Suzanne Perrottet, who is regarded as one of the founders of modern dance, comes an astounding and large collection of images – clippings and photographs –  depicting movements.

Suzanne Perrottet (1889 – 1983) was a pupil of the composer and teacher Emile Jaques-Dalcroze (1865 to 1950). Together with Rudolf von Laban (1879 – 1958) and Mary Wigman (1886 – 1973) she is regarded as one of the founders of the modern expressive dance and modernizer of dance education. From 1917 to 1919 Suzanne Perrottet was in contact with the Dada movement and appeared as musician in various events in the «Galerie Dada» and the «Kaufleuten». During this time she lived and worked with Rudolf von Laban, who built up the «Labangarten – School of Arts Movement» in Hombrechtikon and the «Labanschule» in Zurich. When Rudolf von Laban went to Germany, Suzanne Perrottet continued the «Labanschule» in Zurich as «Bewegungsschule Suzanne Perrottet». Until well into old age, she worked in Zurich as a teacher of dance and musical-rhythmic movement education.
