Goethe Zentrum, in association with the Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts and the Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation, is presenting a special dance program at the Qutub Shahi Tombs at Shaikpet. Titled For Pina, the baller is a homage to a choreographer Pina Bausch.

Dr. Geeta Reddy (Minister for Information and Public Relations, Cinematography, FDC, Tourism, Culture, Archaeology & Museums Archives - Government of Andhra Pradesh) is the chief guest for the evening. The guests of honour are Jayesh Ranjan, IAS (Secretary to Andhra Pradesh Government in Tourism and Archaeology & Museums) and Padmasri Dr. Ananda Shankar Jayant (dancer & choreographer).

For Pina... is situated in a specially-designed sonic environment with cutting edge music.Choreographed and presented by Attakalari proponent Jayachandran Palazhy, the piece uses several media, including film installation and live music, tuned to immerse the audience in a sonic experience, to commemorate Pina's work and life. It is an exploration of male-female interactions, a theme that was an obsession with Pina Bausch whose treatment of it oscillated between tender and violent.

Pina Bausch, a German choreographers, passed away suddenly in June 2009. Pina was a modern dance choreographer and a leading influence in the development of the Tanztheater style of dance. In 1955, Philippine ‘Pina’ Bausch entered the Folkwangschule in Essen, then directed by a choreographer Kurt Jooss, one of the founders of German Expressionist dance.

In 1962, Bausch joined Jooss’ new Folkwang Ballett Company and assisted Jooss, before choreographing her first piece in 1968, and in 1969 succeeding Jooss as artistic director. In 1972, Bausch started as artistic director of the then Wuppertal Opera Ballet, which was later renamed the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. Male-female interaction is a theme found throughout her work.

Established in 1992, Attakkalari is a public charitable trust formed by artistes from different disciplines to help create contexts for contemporary physical expressions in India. The Centre’s movements are oriented towards contemporary dance, kalaripayattu (martial art of Kerala), yoga, ballet and other international dances.
