Pina Bausch's Dance Theatre

Tracing the Evolution of Tanztheater

Lucy Weir

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Modernism Drama and Performance

  • The first full-scale study interrogating the relationship between Bausch's Tanztheater and modernist theatre practice, structured around a chronological framework of case study choreographies
  • A new theorisation of the development of Bausch's oeuvre, locating her approach in a broader context of intercultural artistic exchange in the post-WWII period
  • Draws on literary and theatre theory to form an interdisciplinary methodology for understanding and interrogating Bauschs oeuvre
  • Based on extensive archival research and a specialised knowledge of the evolution of modern dance
