Legendary German dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch, who directed the Tanztheater de Wuppertal from 1973 until her unforeseen death in 2009, is considered not only a great figure of German expressionist dance, but also as one of the greatest contemporary choreographers of the 20th century. An Evening with Pina Bausch features two documentaries that offer insight into her artistic life and creative process. Co-presented by the Germanic-American Institute and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

PINA BAUSCH - From confused and irritated audiences to standing ovations worldwide, Pina Bausch shares stories
of her journey in this documentary starting with forming her company Tanztheather Wuppertal in the early 1970's to creating
over 30 astonishing works. Directed by Anne Linsel. (Germany, 2006, 45 min.).

BREATH WITH PINA BAUSCH - Award-winning director Huseyin Karabey's high-caliber documentary provides unprecedented access into the creative process of one of modern dance's most compelling minds. A Breath with Pina Bausch was inspired by the city of Istanbul, the cosmopolitan centre that the Byzantine, Roman and the Ottoman Empires all called home. (Turkey, 2004, 45 min.)
