The Project

The dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch made history: in dance, theatre and throughout the arts. Her unique work and artistic legacy enjoy the status of national cultural heritage. To keep this heritage alive, and provide new ways to access it, the Pina Bausch Centre is planned at Wuppertal’s former municipal theatre, the Schauspielhaus.

The Four Pillar Concept

The concept for the Pina Bausch Centre combines tradition with innovation, artistic excellence with a democratic notion of the arts; it will be internationally influential while involving the local community. It will be supported by the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, the Pina Bausch Foundation, the Production Centre and the Wupperbogen Forum.

Architectural Realisation

The Schauspielhaus, Wuppertal’s former municipal theatre, was Pina Bausch’s favourite venue. She created the majority of her works for this stage. Now protected as a historic monument, yet still highly modern in feel, five decades after the building was first opened it has been offered a new future as part of the planned Pina Bausch Centre. On the basis of the plans for its use, Wuppertal council’s facilities management has created a project sketch for the architectural realisation of the idea.
