A Primer for Pina

A Primer for Pina
dir. Jolyon Wimhurst, Susan Sontag/UK/1984/35 min.
Gdyńskie Centrum Filmowe, sala Goplana

“A Primer for Pina" is a sort of video profile of Bausch's art, with Sontag as the on-screen narrator and extensive intercutting to Bausch and her company in rehearsal and performance.

Jolyon Wimhurst has structured the piece using collage technique that itself helps prepare the viewer for Bausch's multilayered stagecraft and choreography -- the form of the video is one with its message.
