Wim Wender's Pina Bausch Project


  • by Wim Wenders
  • 100 min, Digital 3D
  • Postproduction, to be completed 2010

NEUE ROAD MOVIES and TANZTHEATER WUPPERTAL PINA BAUSCH announce the commencement of pre-production on PINA, the first dance feature film to be shot in 3D.

Wenders said: “The two-dimensional cinema screen is just not capable of capturing Pina Bausch’s work, either emotionally or aesthetically. When I watched her dance for the first time twenty-five years ago, I was captivated and deeply moved. I was able to understand human movement, gestures and feelings in a whole new way. And this magic is what I would like to translate to the screen, working closely with Pina Bausch and her dancers. 3D gives us the possibility of taking the audience directly onto the stage, into the middle of the event.“
Producer Gian-Piero Ringel: “Only mainstream 3D films have been available so far, as this new format has been developed with commercial preferences. With PINA, we offer a highly artistic 3D film for the first time. “

Through the collaboration of Pina Bausch and Wim Wenders, along with the pioneer of European stereographie Alain Derobe, we will set a new benchmark for 3D.

Pina Bausch, artistic director of the TANZTHEATER WUPPERTAL PINA BAUSCH since 1973, has expanded and reformulated the language of dance with her innovative and unique choreography. Her work has become legendary and performances continue to sell out world-wide. Three dances are planned for PINA: CAFÉ MÜLLER (world premiere 1978), SACRE DU PRINTEMPS (world premiere 1975), VOLLMOND (world premiere 2006).
