“Remembering Pina” is a tribute and dance spectacle, inspired by the celebrated German choreographer, Pina Bausch (1940-2009).
International choreographer and dancer Susan Osberg is intent upon multifaceted art making - including written and spoken word, choreography and film.
Since her Workwith Dancers Company moved from NYC to Beacon in 2004, she has been presenting original choreography and improvisational work, while generating small films in a two step recycling process, transforming her dances from performance to film. The performance - “Remembering Pina" will elicit a montage of dance imagery along with a video installation by Jean Brennan and spoken word by the dancers. The studio space of Ballet Arts in Beacon NY, will evoke Pina’s rehearsal studio in Wuppertal, Germany. Susan Osberg has collaborated closely with her dancers, ranging in age from 65 to 30, all of whom remember the annual New York performances of Pina Bausch at BAM.
Memory, as we know, is neither accurate nor true. Here, the act of remembering is a process of forgetting and making something new.
Video Installation: Jean Brennan
“Remembering Pina” is a Workwith Dancers Company Production
