This story celebrates the art of the legendary dancer and the people who interpret her work today. Two of her dance projects show how young dancers from all over the world are rediscovering Pina’s unique choreographic style. They are guided by former members of Bausch’s Tanztheater company. But Pina is not someone who can simply be copied. The dancers have to re-live her choreographies with their bodies and their own stories. It is a fascinating metamorphosis: While the performers of street dance, classical ballet and traditional and contemporary African dance forms transform Pina’s work, Pina’s choreographies transform the dancers.
