Pina Bausch: The Biography

Author:

The first-ever biography in English of Pina Bausch, perhaps the most influential performer and choreographer of the 20th century.

Marion Meyer has written an accessible, readable account, with a clear journalistic approach that penetrates the mystique and mythology surrounding Pina’s life. Bausch was notoriously shy of discussing her work, yet Meyer’s research is underpinned by several quotes from Pina herself, as well as members of her ensemble. As well as illuminating her personal life and her work ethic, it also takes stock of Bausch’s legacy and the future for the Tanztheater Wuppertal, the company she created.

 

‘There are a handful of artists who have the uncanny ability to bridge the material world and the dream world of the subconscious, of angels and demons. Pina Bausch was one such artist.’ –  Alistair Spalding, Artistic Director, Sadler’s Wells
