Dancing Pina film screening

Pina Bausch revolutionised modern dance with her choreography. But what remains of her legacy?

Two spectacular dance projects show how a young generation of dancers from all over the world 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 Le Sacre du Printemps at the École des Sables 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. Dancing Pina – a visually intense and emotional journey into the world of modern dance and beyond.
