Tanztheater Pina Bausch Wuppertal at 40 - panel discussion
Theatre Studies, University of Glasgow in conjunction with Goethe Institut Glasgow
Tanztheater Pina Bausch are turning 40 this year and we are using this anniversary to take stock and look back at four decades of dance theatre. We will also be discussing “Sweet Mambo”, the production Tanztheater are presenting at the Festival, and we will try to look ahead at the company’s future, five years after Pina Bausch’s premature death.
The panel discussion will be hosted by Dr Anselm Heinrich, Head of Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow, and he will be joined by Robert Sturm (ex co-artistic director Tanztheater Pina Bausch and current director of the Pina40 anniversary season) and Matthias Burkert, musical director Tanztheater Pina Bausch.
