Pina Bausch and the Tanztheater

Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn

4 March – 24 July 2016

Events in the Lichtburg


The Lichtburg – a forum for immersive encounters with the work of Pina Bausch

‘Lichtburg’ is the name of the rehearsal studio in which Pina Bausch developed most of her pieces in collaboration with her company. An old cinema in Wuppertal, it became a place of work, confrontation and play, a protected space which rarely opened its doors to outsiders. 

At the heart of the exhibition is the reconstruction of the Lichtburg. Here the different themes of the exhibition are revisited and reflected. Visitors are invited to experience the Lichtburg as a laboratory of memory and transformation. Join us for performances, dance workshops, films, open rehearsals, lecture performances, training classes and talks. Like the original Lichtburg, the reconstruction must necessarily remain a restricted-access space to preserve its intimate character. Depending on the format of the event, it offers space for 20 to 50 visitors.

The Art and Exhibition Hall becomes a platform for dance. Workshops for dance enthusiasts of all levels of competence offer a mix of different techniques, traditions and practices. Drop in; there is a wide range of events you can join spontaneously and without previous experience. A programme of public rehearsals offers a glimpse of choreographic processes and an opportunity for exchange with the artists.
