A rush for the senses

An homage to the artistic lightness of ballet – and an exploratory journey through the modern world of dance.


When sounds evoke vivid pictures in the imagination and movements unveil hidden emotions transforming both the dramatic and the comical into an intoxicating spectacle, then we’re talking about ballet. At the latest since Hollywood discovered the world of ballet with the Oscar-nominated film Black Swan, classic ballet and contemporary dance theatre are back in vogue. Dance – the movement to music – is one of the most primeval forms of human expression. Dance may even be one of the oldest forms of human civilisation.

Admittedly, there is an enormous range of dance out there – as a way of just passing the time, as ritualised dance or as a form of art. The latter underwent constant reinvention over the centuries, and what we call classical ballet today is the classical repertory ballet in the Russian tradition, complete with white tutus and grand orchestral music – ballet as exemplified by Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. But even this classical ballet’s changing. And it has changed enormously at the latest since Pina Bausch began reinventing the world of dance from her base in Wuppertal back in the 1970s. In her productions, it was allowed to speak and to sing, to laugh and to cry. It was a revolution that did not destroy the traditional but rather rediscovered its soul by giving our yearning for love, closeness and security a dance-like face. The Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch dance company performs around the world, appearing on stages as far away as Australia, as well as in Paris, London and New York. And, of course, in Wuppertal.

Tanztheater Wuppertal

This is where Pina Baush’s emotionally evocative dance revolution started. And it lives on in her dance company, today directed by Bausch’s collaborator Lutz Förster.
