The International Summer Festival Kampnagel 2014 presents the world premiere of Eszter Salamon's group performance MONUMENT 0 - Haunted by wars (1913—2013), the first part of a series reflecting on the relationship between choreography and history.

Salamon looks at the past 100 years as a history of wars, and together with six dancers performs the tribal and folk dances, as well as other popular dance forms originated from the conflict zones of all five continents. Embracing the approach of an archaeological history, this ‘dance of death’ brings about an impressively sombre yet surreal scenario, giving stage to an invisible world / dance history.
