DANCING PINA celebrates the art of legendary choreographer Pina Bausch and the people who approach her work today. With an elemental force that inspires and intoxicates. Two pieces, two continents, two dance worlds: The venerable Semperoper in Dresden, Germany, and the École des Sables in a fishing village near Dakar, Senegal. The spectacular projects of the Pina Bausch Foundation show how a young generation of dancers from all over the world is rediscovering Pina's choreographies. Under the guidance of former dancers of her company. But Pina cannot simply be copied. The dancers have to experience Pina's choreographies anew with their bodies and their stories. A fascinating metamorphosis: While the dancers from street dance, classical ballet and traditional and contemporary African dances change Pina's work, Pina's choreographies change the dancers. DANCING PINA makes visible the universal power of dance where bodies, identities and biographies collide. A stirring film about the eternally luminous legacy of one of the most formative figures in international dance.
