Description

In an international first, the Minderoo Foundation supports the remount of Pina Bausch’s Tannha¨user Bacchanal*. Danced by WAAPA students, this is the first time Tannha¨user Bacchanal will be performed outside of Germany and the first-ever performance of Pina Bausch's work in Perth. Widely considered to be the precursor to Bausch's famous The Rite of Spring, Tannha¨user Bacchanal will be taught by leading artist-in-residence Barbara Kaufmann supported by Marigia Maggipinto, both long-standing members of the Tanztheater Wuppertal. The Minderoo Foundation is proud to partner with WAAPA to bring these world-class arts practitioners to Perth as part of the Visiting Artist program.

Pina bausch, Tannha¨user Bacchanal
Icon celebrates the enormous influence of German choreographer Pina Bausch on generations of dance makers and performers around the world. WAAPA is delighted to welcome two artists from Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal to remount Bausch’s Tannha¨user Bacchanal, in which 23 dancers perform to Wagner’s romantic, restless music.

Meryl Tankard, Chants de Mariage
Meryl Tankard is one of Australia’s finest contemporary dancers and an international artist in her own right. Tankard, a former Pina Bausch company member from 1978 to 1984, will remount her Chants de Mariage with assistance from award-winning local choreographer Paige Gordon. This 1991 work for an all-female cast is a dialogue about ritual, secrets, deception and sacred vows.

Michael Whaites, Things That Remain
Michael Whaites, artistic director of LINK Dance Company and a former company member of Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal, will remount Things That Remain. Whaites created this nostalgic, gentle and beautiful remembrance in 2009 soon after Pina Bausch’s passing.

Kim McCarthy
Icon is rounded out by a new work from Kim McCarthy, formerly principal dancer with Nacho Duato’s Compan~ia Nacional de Danza and now WAAPA’s Head of Classical Dance.
