A Breath with Pina Bausch
The Creative Life • 39m
Istanbul Film Festival
A unique record of the visit to Istanbul in 2002 of legendary German dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch, and her Tanztheater de Wuppertal company, a visit which inspired the performance piece 'A Breath.' It provides a fascinating backstage look at a work in progress and gives an insight into the creative genius of Bausch, who died in 2009. Interspersed with the rehearsal scenes is the actual stage work, a performance full of stunningly poetic images that are pure dance.
