Date: Sunday 30th September
Location: The Assembly Rooms
Event Duration: 2 hours with interval
A breathtaking dance documentary and tribute to the late German choreographer, Pina Bausch, as her dancers perform her most famous creations.
Pina Bausch died in 2011 while director Wim Wenders was making this mesmerising dance documentary. Known for her use of movement rather than words the dancers interpret Bausch's philosophy eg 'Go on searching' and 'What are we looking for?' by putting her brilliant choreography into novel and intriguing settings. All the dancers are from Tanztheater Wuppertal, the company she ran for 36 years.
Refreshments will be available before the performance and during the interval.
"Some will come to this film full of
knowledge of Bausch. For others, it will be as fresh and novel as
Wenders's approach to turning dance into cinema. Both, I think, will
find it entrancing and truly inspiring."
