PINA BAUSCH - THE NEW YORK YEARS

[DOCUMENTARY]

At the young age of 19, German dancer /choreographer Pina Bausch was awarded with a scholarship at Juilliard, in New York City. This formative period, where she worked as a dancer at the Metropolitan Opera and collaborated with names like Paul Taylor and Paul Sanasardo, resonated throughout her whole life. It was in another visit to the U.S. in the seventies that she met some of her most loyal collaborators. During the 1980’s, her relationship with the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where many of her works had their American premiere, created a permanent platform that helped Tanztheater become one of the most prestigious dance companies in the world.

 

Developed in partnership with the Pina Bausch Foundation in Wuppertal, the documentary follows a number of Bausch collaborators, including Paul Sanasardo, who hired her to dance in his company at the age of 20, as well as Malou Airaudo and Dominique Mercy, the first dancers to join her at Tanztheater in Germany. Featuring some of Bausch’s most memorable pieces, such as “Rite of Spring” and “Cafe Muller”.
