Pina Bausch is one of the most significant choreographers of the 21st century. After setting up her company in 1973, she created 42 pieces in a career spanning 36 years before her untimely death in 2009. She left behind a peerless legacy of having popularised a renewed brand of dance theatre around the world, continuing to inspire choreographers in every discipline of dance. Beginning her work as a choreographer in 1968, Pina Bausch is the inventor of tanztheater as it is known today. During 40 years as Artistic Director of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, she nurtured an ensemble of vivid imagination and grand scale. Since her untimely death in 2009, the company has continued to tour her 46 choreographic works around the world. For this visit, the company perform two pieces from the 1980s never before seen in the UK. The first, Auf dem Gebirge hat man ein Geschrei geh?rt (On the Mountain A Cry Was Heard) is an engrossing production, set upon a soil-strewn stage and featuring music from Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Henry Purcell. Gebirge touches upon common themes found in Bausch's work: love, power, and the idiosyncratic nature of human relationships, creating a piece that is in turns sometimes delightful, and sometimes dark and powerful. During her 40 years of choreographing, Pina Bausch developed an artistic canon renowned for its diverse cultural influences and rich visual style. Auf dem Gebirge hat man ein Geschrei geh?rt captures Bausch at the height of her powers, remaining as fresh and exciting now as when it was first performed in 1984. Running time: 2hrs 25mins (including one 20min interval). UK Premiere.
