Come whet your appetite in preparation for the 2016 New Zealand Festival Todd Corporation Season of Café Müller and The Rite of Spring, performed by Pina Bausch's own dance company Tanztheater Wuppertal (Germany) - 17-20 Mar 2016.

There aren’t many great works of art about great artists. High on the list is Wim Wenders’ documentary Pina: A Film for Pina Bausch, which we are screening at selected cinemas around the country throughout November.

With camerawork “as sublime as the performances” (Time Out), the legendary German film-maker will take you on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery onto the stage with the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch company.

Through the film you will venture out of the theatre for performances in the city and surrounding areas of Wuppertal – the place that for 35 years was the home and centre for Bausch’s creativity. Four of Bausch’s dance works, including Café Müller and The Rite of Spring, are at the fore of the film, intercut with company interviews and archive footage of this pioneer of modern dance.
