The Four Pillar Concept
The idea 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 four pillars, interacting but autonomous: the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, the Pina Bausch Foundation, a centre for international productions, and the Wupperbogen Forum. Each of these pillars will enjoy the synergies of consolidation under a shared roof, in terms both of their activities and organisation. Visitors will be able to experience a unique, genre-spanning programme which will rethink the stage and the medium of theatre and allow it to be experienced in new ways.
