Helmut Gottschild

"On the dance faculty with me was German-born dancer Hellmut Gottschild (thumbnails, left and right) who had been Mary Wigman’s assistant in Berlin. We became devoted friends and close collaborators. Hellmut had come to Temple from Germany with members of Group Motion, a dance company he had formed in Berlin. During my first year at Temple, he left Group Motion to form a new company. I was involved in the formation and development of that company, Zero Moving Dance Company which had an influential and distinguished life span in Philadelphia. We co-taught a Movement-Compositiom class in 1971 and until 1986 I played for many of Helmut’s classes."
