A Theater of Bodily Presence: Pina Bausch and Tanztheater Wuppertal is the fifth book in the GARAGE DANCE series dedicated to contemporary dance.
Pina Bausch (1940–2009) is a German dancer and choreographer, creator of Tanztheater (“dance theater”)—a new form of Expressionist dance.
“I am not interested in how people move but what moves them,” Bausch famously said, revealing with these words the very essence of her method. Pina demanded from dancers their “bodily,” real as much as absolute, presence on stage, making her approach genuinely innovative and, like everything significant, it transgressed the boundaries of its author’s work—the influence of Bausch on the evolution of contemporary dance remains vividly felt across the globe.
