William Yang -- Pina Bausch Exhibition

4y ago


Renowned photographer William Yang photographed, "Kontakthof" and "1980", two productions by Pina Bausch at Jim Sharman's Adelaide Festival in 1982. The pictures feature a young Meryl Tankard who was one of the stars of the company Tanztheater Wuppertal. Pina Bausch died in 2009 and Spring Dance 2011 is partly a tribute to her. In this piece William Yang talks about photographing a reluctant Pina Bausch and Meryl Tankard discusses Pina Bausch's impact on the evolution of dance [Video Prod. by Thea Dikeos]
