Dance, Dance – otherwise we are lost
Pina Bausch (1940-2009)
No, there was no hurricane that swept across the stage, there were just people performing who moved differently, and who moved me as I had never been moved before. This was not theatre, nor pantomime, nor ballet and not at all opera. Pina is, as you know, the creator of a new art. Dance theatre.

Wim Wenders’ tribute to the legendary German choreographer Pina Bausch shows for the first time the artistic potential of the 3d movie. A sensual and hypnotic film-experience that shows Bausch uniqueblend of theater and dance. He takes the audience on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery into a new dimension: straight onto the stage with the legendaryTanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch ensemble, he follows the dancers out of the theatre into the city and the surrounding areas of Wuppertal – the place, which for 35 years was the home and centre for Pina Bausch’s creativity.
The making of Pina; In early 2009, Wim Wenders and his production company Neue Road Movies, together with Pina Bausch and the Ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal, began the phase of actual pre-production. After half a year of intensive work, and only two days before the planned 3D rehearsal shoot, the unimaginable happened: Pina Bausch died on June 30th 2009, suddenly and unexpectedly. Wim Wenders immediately stopped preparations, convinced that the movie, without Pina Bausch, should no longer be pursued. After a period of mourning and reflection, Wim Wenders decided to make the film without Pina Bausch at his side, after all. PINA was filmed in Wuppertal in three stages: in autumn of 2009, in spring and in summer of 2010.
As much as we need the third dimension, we are simultaneously doing our best to make the audience forget this very ‘conquest of space’. The plasticity should not call attention to itself, but should make itself almost invisible, so that Pina’s art becomes even more evident.
PINA BAUSCH was born 1940 in Solingen and died 2009 in Wuppertal. She received her dance training at the Folkwang School in Essen under Kurt Jooss, where she achieved technical excellence. Soon after the director of Wuppertal’s theatres, Arno Wüstenhöfer, engaged her as choreographer, from autumn 1973, she renamed the ensemble the Tanztheater Wuppertal. Under this name, although controversial at the beginning, the company gradually achieved international recognition. Its combination of poetic and everyday elements influenced the international development of dance decisively. Awarded some of the greatest prizes and honours world-wide, Pina Bausch is one of the most significant choreographers of our time.
She was an artist of the kind that the world is only blessed with from time to time. Her repertoire of works has inspired generations of audiences and artists with an impact that is hard to overestimate.
Alistair Spalding, Artistic Director of Sadler’s Wells
WIM WENDERS Born in Düsseldorf on 14 August 1945, he started taking photographs at the age of 7.

LA DANSE-LE BALLET DE L’OPERA DE PARIS
Producer: Frederick Wiseman
Photo: John Davey
Music: Joby Talbot
Through his camera follows Wiseman company’s daily classes, rehearsals and performances. Although there are dancers and dance that is the main focus, Wiseman manages simultaneously to capture the fantastic facilities around the company, the huge Palais Garnier Opera in Paris. A luxurious theater with over 2200 velvet seats framed by a stunning Marc Chagall ceiling. Camera changes from bright, modern studios to underground chambers in an almost labyrinthine system.
La Danse – Le Ballet de l’Opéra de Paris devotes most of its time to watching young men and women — among them Nicolas Le Riche, Marie-Agnès Gillot, and Agnès Letestu — rehearsing and/or performing seven ballets, including: Genus by Wayne McGregor, Paquita by Pierre Lacotte, Nutcracker by Rudolf Nureyev, Medea by Angelina Preljocaj, The House of Bernarda Alba by Mats Ek, Romeo and Juliet by Sasha Waltz and Orpheus and Eurydyce by Pina Bausch.
Frederick Wiseman, born January 1, 1930 in Boston, is an American documentary filmmaker. He came to documentary filmmaking after first being trained as a lawyer. Wiseman has won numerous film awards, as well as Guggenheim and MacArthur fellowships.
The first feature-length film that Wiseman produced was The cool World in 1963. He next produced and directed Titicut Follies, 1967. He has both produced and directed all of his films since. They chiefly are studies of social institutions; for example hospital, high school, police department. All have been aired on PBS, one of his primary fudners.
Critic Philip Lopate has called Wiseman “the greatest American filmmaker of the last 30 years.”

Using performance and dance, she brings her history to life in a swiftly-moving poem of sound and image. Shot entirely on location in Southern Africa, “Nora” includes a multitude of local performers and dancers of all ages, from young schoolchildren to ancient grandmothers, and much of the music is specially composed by a legend of Zimbabwean music – Thomas Mapfumo.

The Cost of Living was shot on location in Cromer on the Norfolk coast: a typical, old-fashioned and faded British seaside town. The summer season has boiled to an end. An air of desertion hangs over the city.
Eddie and David are disillusioned street performers. Eddie is tough, confrontational and not afraid to defend their faith in justice, respect and honesty. David is a dancer who does not have legs (as he is in real life), watching him makes you reconsider accepted notions of grace and perfection. He is quietly determined not to let his disabilities or society’s prejudices get in his way. A number of inter-linked scenes show Eddie and David’s encounters with other people, and some are incredibly hard-hitting, others exciting because of their sheer physicality.
Lloyd Newson´s work since 1986 as the Director of DV8 Physical Theatre has had a dynamic impact on contemporary dance and theatre. He danced and/or choreographed with many companies before forming his own company DV8. The Company is today considered one of the major in European modern dance, and refers to a long list of choreographies and dancefilms.
Cost Of Living is awarded: Special Merit Award Documentary and Disability Festival 2009, Athens, All About Dance Award Milano Doc Festival 2007, Milan, Choreography Media Honors Award Dance Camera West 2007, Los Angeles, Time Out Live Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance 2006, London.

DIRECTOR:PETER ANDERSON CHOREOGRAPHER: ROSEMARY LEE BUTCHER PRODUCTION: MJ PRODUCTIONS MUSIC: GRAEME MILLER PERFORMER: TOM EVANS
The boy stands alone in a dramatic and unforgiving landscape. A powerful and compelling figure with an uncanny ability to conjure and manipulate his solitary universe. He moves with stealth and grace, prowling like a cheetah and then leaping and bounding playfully among the dunes. His extraordinary movement leads the viewer through the vast, empty landscape and into his own inner world.
Director Peter Anderson and choreographer Rosemary Lee have produced numerous dance films together, BOY being the first of their studies of human figures in the landscape.
Commissioned by the Arts Council and BBC2 as part of Dance for the Camera. Broadcast BBC2 July 1996. Has been screened and broadcast internationally. Short listed for the IMZ Screen Choreography Award and received a special citation for the Choreography for the Camera Award at Moving Pictures.

MUSIC: GRAEME MILLER
PRODUCTION: MJW PRODUCTIONS
Co-commissioned by Arts Council England & BBC
Trees, insects and birds look-on as the countryside is invaded by a lost regiment of soldiers engaged in a repetitive display. The senseless beauty of military drill, dwarfed by the landscape, is by turns absurd and disturbing.
Miranda Pennell originally trained in contemporary dance and more recently studied visual anthropology at Goldsmiths, London. Her recent and current work explores social performances to be found within archive photography and film. Before this, much of her work has explored aspects of performance through film and video, and has centred on a range of human subjects that has included soldiers and a marching band, teenage ice-skaters, amateur and professional dancers, fight directors and Rock drummers.
Pennell’s film and video work has been shown in different contexts including independent cinema, gallery and broadcast. Her films and videos have received awards at international film festivals, and funding from Arts Council England, Film London’s Artists Film and Video Awards, BBC and the Channel 4 British Documentary Foundation.

PRODUCTION: SOUTH EAST DANCE (UK)
COMPOSER: MIKKEL H. ERIKSEN
In Susanna Wallin’s “Night Practice”, the seven dancers from Coventry’s Kombat Breakers are seen hanging out on a floodlit football pitch at night. There is no coach to be seen and the film explores the undirected energy that comes from being able to do whatever you want. Shot on a pitch in the middle of the night in Coventry, “Night Practice” combines the structure of meticulous training with simple magical wonder.
Susanna Wallin is a film maker based in London. She has received a 2001 London Artists’ Film and Video Awards (LAFVA) to make a new film, Marker.

CONCEPT: ROBERT LEPAGE (CA)
CINEMATOGRAPHER: PEDRO PIRES
PERFORMER: ANNE BRUCE FALCONER
For a period of time, while we believe it to be perfectly still, lifeless flesh responds, stirs and contorts in a final macabre ballet. Are these spasms merely erratic motions or do they echo the chaotic twists and turns of a past life?
Pedro Pires has most notably worked with Francois Girard in the films THE RED VIOLON, as well as THE SOUND OF THE CARCERI for which he won Emmy and Gemini awards for “Outstanding Visual Effects” and “Best Visual Effects”. He also worked in close collaboration with Robert Lepage on the visual conception of POSSIBLE WORLDS.

CINEMATOGREPHER: GUY GODFREE
PRODUCTION: WANDERING EYE PRODUCTIONS
Becoming” tells the story of Idolamantis, an ancient woman that moves like a praying mantis as she blends gracefully through changing landscapes. Despite her elegance, though, Idolamantis is not called upon lightly, for she is as deadly as she appears innocent. But the wise fireflies that watch over the forest have sensed a danger. Man’s uniformity has spread through infinite fields that are swallowing up the last remnants of those old forests we once inhabited. Idolamantis crosses the last portal that separates our worlds and leaps through a cornfield to lure Man into one final battle.
Movement is my first language and through it I have come to find my way and my self in this world. My curiosity and passion for the place where movement and film collide is the driving force of my creative expression. I am continually investigating the possibilities and potentials for filming movement and probing the edges of experience through my moving camera.

Ich ist ein Andere/ I am another one.
“Today I might say, I like myself, and tomorrow I don’t like myself. Yin and Yand. But I have to be in action, and some days I am more lion- hearted on stage than my SELF in the daily life, even if I take part in a dance performance.” This is what Hana and Catalina confess in the OFF- dialogue. The pictures follow the marks they leave, the marks their bodies leav in the environment- to see as research, as a dialogue- with the space, the others and at last with themselves.

The dancer in this video, Anne Jorunn Salhus, died of cancer not long after this film
