The task of the Pina Bausch Foundation is to preserve the artistic legacy of the great dancer and choreographer; to keep it alive and carry it on into the future.
One of the fundamental tasks of the foundation is to assort the very complex and exceptionally comprehensive material from Pina Bausch’s artistic legacy in an archive and make much of it available to the public. In addition, the foundation follows the traces in order to collect the knowledge and experience of Pina Bausch’s companions, dancers, and staff.
The objective of this work is to keep Pina Bausch’s art alive by making it perceptible for future generations – for experts and amateurs, for the curious and newcomers, people of all ages and especially for a young generation of dancers. In letting the pieces come true on stage again and again in the future. And in having a long-term home for the Pina Bausch Foundation and the Pina Bausch Archive; a place for people to meet and a creative universe, like a lushly verdant garden. A centre from which Pina Bausch’s work radiates into the world.
