simple, imaginative and very bold — The Guardian

A performed conversation through time.

Gertrud is a solo performance project. It is an imagined and performed conversation through time between the Austrian expressionist choreographer Gertrud Bodenwieser (1890–1959) and Simon Ellis (1968–): a solo performer-choreographer.

Gertrud was performed in early February 2010 at The Patrick Centre in Birmingham as part of British Dance Edition. It was one of five finalists for the The Place Prize 2008 sponsored by Bloomberg, and premièred at The Place on 10 September 2008.
