The final event of the festival – screening of the famous, award-winning film PINA.
Pina Bausch was a much-loved German choreographer whose work was unlike anybody else’s: she transformed stages incorporating nature influences and brought forward the importance of using gestures in choreography, creating distinctive style and building a huge legacy for the contemporary scene.
Pina was directed by Wim Wenders in 2011 and nominated for the Best Documentary Oscar in 2012.
“A haunting elergy for choreographer Pina Bausch with a wondrously surreal evocation of her work.” Joe Morgenstern , The Wall Street Journal
