Routledge Performance Practitioners is a series of introductory guides to the key theatre-makers of the last century. Each volume explains the background to and the work of one of the major influences on twentieth- and twenty-first-century performance.

This book is the first English language overview of Pina Bausch’s work and methods, combining:

* an historical and artistic context for Bausch’s work.

* her own words on her work, including a newly published interview.

* a detailed account of her groundbreaking work Kontakthof, both as performed by Tanztheater Wuppertal and by ladies and gentlemen over 65.

* practical exercises derived from Bausch’s working method for both dance and theatre artists and students.

As a first step towards critical understanding, and as an initial exploration before going on to further, primary research, Routledge Performance Practitioners are unbeatable value for today’s student.
