Pina Bausch

Pina Bausch started observing at a young age while staying in her parents' restaurant - a quality that became her strength. Studying with Kurt Jooss at the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen, the dancer, born in 1940, was taught modern dance techniques. After a two-year scholarship in New York from 1960-1962, she worked as a soloist in the newly founded Folkwang Ballet directed by Kurt Jooss. Soon gaining regional attention leading to Pina Bausch becoming the director of the ballet department in Wuppertal. In 1973 she began her career with the programmatic renaming of the company to »Wuppertaler Tanztheater« and later to »Tanztheater Wuppertal«. Her subtle observations determined the themes of her pieces, which as dance theatre founded a new genre that she continued to develop throughout her life. Pina Bausch died in 2009.
