Pina in 3D

A new 3D film on Pina Bausch, directed by Wim Wenders has premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and will be shown for the first time in Australia at the Sydney Opera House on April 17. Bausch herself was to be at the centre of the movie but she died a few days before filming began. Wenders shot some of the film in Wuppertal where she worked and lived and there’s an intriguing glimpse of the surrealistic overhead railway in one shot.
Wenders will be in Sydney for a Q&A after the screening.
Pina tributes continue next year with 10 of her works based on cities to be performed back to back in a collaboration between Sadler’s Wells and the Barbican as part of the Cultural Olympiad in 2012.
At the memorial ceremony for Bausch on 4 September 2009 Wenders said:
“Even as a spectator sitting in the audience she brought out the best in me, in us.
She let us see and understand things to which no other art had opened our eyes before:
She showed us another way to overcome our fears and to not feel imprisoned in our bodies any more. She conveyed a concept of “freedom” that was completely new for all of us, for me, too, and that hit us right through the heart”.
