Two-day workshop by Rainer Behr, member of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch

Pina Bausch


29-30 OCT 2016
11:00-14:00
Professional dancers and senior students of professional dancing schools.
A two-day workshop for understanding the working processes of Pina Bausch.
Cost:
30 € (for both days)
The workshop will focus on repertoire by Pina Bausch, in relation more specifically to the Rite of Spring. From this piece the dancers will approach one group scene, focus on a solo of Rainer Behr and then also work creatively all together in understanding the working processes of Pina Bausch (approach how she worked with her dancers). So the workshop will focus on repertory, but also have a creative dimension to it.
