It began with controversy: in 1973 Pina Bausch was appointed director of dance for the Wuppertal theatres and the form she developed in those early years, a mixture of dance and theatre, was wholly unfamiliar. In her performances the players did not merely dance; they spoke, sang - and sometimes they cried or laughed too. Dance theatre evolved into a unique genre, inspiring choreographers throughout the world and influencing theatre and classical ballet too.
We set aside the month of August to celebrate and honour this great German choreographer with books and film screenings on some of her works. You may also visit the Goethe-Institut Library for books on Pina Bausch.

Three years bevor her death in 2009, Pina Bausch and the Wuppertal Dance Theatre came to a phenomenon of their own world sucess on the track.
The film shows in stage clips and interviews that her fame came through perseverance and clearly explains the great German choreographer's way of working. All of her stagings arose out of pure improvisation during the rehearsals. There were no rules, only questions, asked by Pina Bausch. Every dancer was able to influence the Play in a certain direction.
This film is a tribute to Pina Bausch as a Person as well as an introduction to the Wuppertal Tanztheater.
The Goethe Bar & Grill will be open to offer grilled food items and beverages including German beers, wine and many others.
