About Pina Bausch
Pina Bausch was born in 1940 in Solingen, Germany and died in 2009 in Wuppertal.

Soon after the director of Wuppertal’s theatres, Arno Wüstenhöfer engaged her as choreographer. In 1973, she renamed the ensemble the Tanztheater Wuppertal. Although congroversial at the beginning, the company gradually achieved international recognition. Its combination of poetic and everyday elements influenced the international of dance decisively. Awarded some of the greatest prizes and honours worldwide, Pina Bausch is one of the most significant choreographers of our time.
