A danced conference on Pina Bausch’s poetic universe, technique and creativity.
She knows how to dance and tell stories; how to stick to the gesture and the tale in an equally organic and smooth energetic knot. Dancer and choreographer Cristiana Morganti, one of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch key components from 1993 to 2014, makes movement live in line with words without ever losing sight of the audience she is talking to. She winds and unwinds gestures in a bouquet of living feelings. With her solo “Moving with Pina”, a danced conference on the German choreographer’s artistic universe, Cristiana Morganti reveals, in her typical joyful and generous mood, the keys to the making of Pina Bausch’s notorious solos. As closely as possible to body, heart and emotion, she dissects some emblematic repertoire excerpts. A bit of dance history whispered as a conversation or a secret.
