What makes us move. The spectators memories of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch  was carried out for the Maratona Bausch. Make memory dance, rethink the story is an event,curated by Susanne Franco and organized and promoted by Lavanderia a Vapore/Piemonte dal vivo (November 2018), to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the creation of Café Müller (1978) and pay homage to Pina Bausch, ten years after her demise. The short movie is a series of interviews the visual anthropologist Rossella Schillaci held with the spectators who had seen the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch’s shows in Italy, to give back a sample of this repertoire to the individual and collective memory. Some of those interviewed have responded to a press or social media call, while others have been called on to tell their experience and their memories. This dramaturgy of voices is accompanied with the video images provided by Pina Bausch Foundation, that will conserve the only copy of the short movie in its digital archive.

Dancing Dreams. Following in Pina Bausch’s steps.
DirectionAnne Linsel, Rainer Hoffmann. A movie with Pina Bausch, Josephine Ann Endicott, Bénédicte Billet. Original title: Tanzträume. Genre: Documentary – Germany, 2010, 92′ duration.

On different musical genres, from cucaracha to boogie woogie, mixing lyricism and realism, “Kontakthof” becomes an heterogeneous micro-world, where differences are highlighted but at the same time welcomed with touching tolerance. The adorable humanity smiling, laughing and dancing on stage swings between the embarrassment of the first sentimental trepidations and the fire of an overwhelming passion of love. Learning how to engage with others is a mandatory step for youth and Bausch’s students are not exempt. They overcome the obstacle by acting: through fiction their awareness is raised and they grow up. They accept their own physical limits, legs too thin or shoulders too large, laughing non-stop, proving that they deserve their place on stage.
