On the occasion of the ten years since her death, Archivio Storico della Fondazione Teatro La Fenice remembers and celebrates Pina Bausch (1940-2009) with a retrospective on the years spent in Venice, curated by Franco Bolletta, artistic and organizational manager of dance activities. On display are the stage shots of the shows staged at the Fenice by the dancer and choreographer of the Tanzthater Wuppertal from 1981 to 2007, images that retrace the crucial steps for Bausch and the history of dance-theater: from Kontakthof, born in 1978 and staged at Venice in July 1981 at the famous Nelken promenade (1983), now replicated all over the world, by Blaubart (1985), reinterpretation of the opera The castle of Duke Bluebeard by Bartók and the fairy tale by Charles Perrault, at the beloved Café Müller on the music of Henry Purcell (1985), passing through Das Frühlingsopfer (1985), Bandoneon (1985), Viktor (1992), Für die Kinder von gestern, heute und morgen (2005), up to the last title of Bausch presented at Venice, staged a few months after receiving the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement for Dance, Água (2007) inspired by Brazilian atmospheres and danced, with the costumes by Marion Cito, on the videos of Peter Pabst. The homage of the Fenice to Pina Bausch and her Venetian years also includes the looping projection of Pina Bausch, a film by Anne Linsel, co-produced by WDR and Arte, partly also shot in the spaces of the Teatro La Fenice.
