Pina Bausch (1940-2009) is one of the most influential choreographers of the 20th century. Together with her company Tanztheater Wuppertal she has created a wealth of pieces for more than 36 years, many of which are still performed in many countries around the world. The Pina Bausch Foundation carries her artistic legacy into the future. In 2016, they developed the exhibition “Pina Bausch and the Tanztheater “.

Ensembles, a video installation about Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch– a composition of video projections and music, created by Ismaël Dia and Pina Bausch’s long-time companion Matthias Burkert. Video recordings had been an essential part of Pina Bausch’s working process since the beginnings. Rolf Borzik, Herbert Rach, Detlef Erler, Jérôme Cassou, Grigori Chakov and others have been recording her work. This installation is a journey through time, emergence, evolution, change and rejuvenation – it is one way out of many to look at this artistic work.
