Dance and music in the theater represent an artistic challenge, which, despite its obviousness, has also been repeatedly questioned and subjected to violent criticism. At the same time, it constantly developed new, imaginatively creative forms. To examine the relationship between dramaturgical concepts and their scenic realization in detail on the basis of "case studies" or in a general overview in a general view, formed the center of a symposium that did not stimulate practical perception and theoretical reflection as diametrically opposing poles Perspectives within artistic processes. More than thirty dance, music and theater academics from Germany and abroad illuminated this subject from deliberately very diverging perspectives. The spectrum of the contributions from ballet de cour, ballet en action and ballet pantomime over the experiments around the dancemodern of the early 20th century to contemporary dance performances. It is necessary to highlight the variety of possibilities for the interplay of dance and music in the theater, and to compare the resulting musical choreographic methods with each other in order to give an equally inspiring and reflective view of the old And yet always to direct new artistic fascination.
