Pina Bausch revolutionised modern dance with her choreography. But what
remains of her legacy? Two projects show how a young generation of dancers is rediscovering Pina’s choreography: the Semperoper Ballet Company in Dresden is rehearsing Pina’s dance opera Iphigenia in Tauris, and dancers from all over Africa are rehearsing Pina’s ballet The Rite of Spring at the Sand School in Senegal. A fascinating metamorphosis: while the dancers from street dance, classical ballet, traditional and modern African dance transform Pina’s work, Pina’s choreography transforms the dancers. Pina lives.
Director Florian Heinzen-Ziob will be present at the first screening.
