Pina Bausch's work has had tremendous impact across the spectrum of late twentieth-century performance practice. It helped to redefine the possibilities of what both dance and theater can be. This edited collection presents a compendium of source material combined with contextual essays that serve as a base for the study of Pina Bausch's performance work. Edited by a renowned Bausch expert, Royd Climenhaga, it promises to help to open up Bausch's performative world for students, scholars and practitioners alike. The wealth of material collected here includes interviews, reviews and articles, framed with introductory essays. These help to chart the evolution of Bausch's Tanztheater from its roots in German expressionist dance to its lasting legacy for dance today.
Royd Climenhaga is on the Arts Faculty at Eugene Lang College/The New School University in New York City. He writes on intersections between dance arid theatre, including the book Pina Bausch in Routledge's Performance Practitioner series, and develops and produces new performance work as Co-Artistic Director of Human Company.
