The Nelken Line Project
In 2017, in a bid to perpetuate the legacy of the founder of dance-theatre, the Pina Bausch Foundation launched the Nelken Line Project, which has since brought together thousands of dance lovers around the world. The concept is simple: through a tutorial, participants learn a movement sequence from Bausch’s iconic work Nelken, then gather to dance it together in a public space. The performance is filmed and the video is sent to the foundation, which archives and distributes it, creating a moving international community that collectively shares in dancing the profound humanity of Pina Bausch.
