Special Screening of Wim Wenders film PINA
An exciting prelude to the 13th JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience, organised by the Centre for Creative Arts (University of KwaZulu-Natal) with principal funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, is the one-off screening of the feature-length dance film PINA. Directed by legendary German filmmaker Wim Wenders, PINA is a tribute to late choreographer-dancer, Pina Bausch, and has drawn exceptional attendances in Europe.
Wenders takes the audience on a sensual, visually dazzling journey of thrilling dance. Following the dancers of the renowned Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch ensemble out of the theatre into the city and surrounding areas of Wuppertal – the place which was home and centre for Pina Bausch’s creativity - Wenders captures the essence and magic that is encapsulated in Bausch’s art. A keen cinema experimentalist, Wenders has made this film in 3D, saying “3D is a perfect medium to portray the multi-dimensional movement of dance”.
