LET'S TALK ABOUT DANCE. Tanztheater Calling
The official podcast of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch.
How to shine? From gardening, dancing and healing bodies - with Bernd Uwe Marszan
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions Marc and Bernd couldn’t meet in the studio.
In this home recording episode Marc and Bernd speak about Bernd’s unusual path of becoming a dancer and the moment when he was infected by movement. He recalls the various stages of his life, training, and jobs he did before finally studying at the Folkwang University of the Arts. Bernd reflects on his work with Pina Bausch and his hunger for knowledge where movements come from.
Have you ever thought about which color you are?
As the new season starts, we are presenting the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal in a new way: as well as offering insights into the dancers’ artistic biographies for the very first time, we are also publishing snapshots of them performing in recent works as part of our new project FACES. Each image captures an instant, a mere fraction of a second, in the transformation process that a dancer goes through when he or she dances in a piece by Pina Bausch. The black-and-white photographs are not intended to be portraits, but rather the response of another artist – the photographer Jochen Viehoff – to the dancer’s body, face and movement in a moment of rapture. It is only on stage that such heightened moments of transformation and magic can take place.
As time goes on, new photographs will be added to document the wide range of expression in Pina Bausch’s works.
