Pina Bausch – Trailer Script

Movie director Wim Wenders made a new film in 3D about Pina Bausch and her ballet company. PINA Bausch worked in Wuppertal (my hometown), Germany. She died 2009. So this movie became a tribute to her life-long engagement.

Chronology of the trailer fragments as featured at youtube, analyzed and translated by frizztext:

  • 0:00 Intro
  • 0:10 group dance: Dance, if not, you are lost
  • 0:14 theater, men grabbing at frightened woman
  • 0:18 falling / trust / couple
  • 0:20 running uphill
  • 0:26 LOVE, street in Wuppertal-Barmen with Schwebebahn
  • 0:34 LIBERTY, jumping from a rock
  • 0:36 FIGHT, bound with a lasso
  • 0:39 LONGING, yearning: she carries him on her back + red dressed girl with a tree on head
  • 0:44 JOY, stunt on a chair
  • 0:47 DESPAIR, scene in a coal-mine

  3. Bravo, Frizztext, Bravo. I love Pina Bausch. She is my all time favorite choreographer. The first performance I saw of her Tantztheatre Wuppertal was “Ths Seven Deadly Sins” in NYC in 1987. Since then I have seen “Two Cigarettes in the Dark” and many others performances. Thanks so much for sharing this.

    Hello: Thank you so much for this post. I loved the movie too. I am actually looking for all the ‘character-generated’ quotes (text) that appeared on screen throughout the movie, for a dance-related project I am writing. Do you know where these might be available? Thank you!

    What does Pina say at the very end? “Dance dance, otherwise we are lost. Dance dance…” Can’t make out the end of that line.
    This film is incredible.
