The Blind / Kateryna Pogorielova & Tetiana Znamerovska / Öffentliche Probe am Freitag, 07. Juni 2024, 19:30 Uhr

The Blind ist ein kollektives Bild einer trägen Gesellschaft, die unfähig ist, kritisch zu denken. Es geht um die Angst vor der Verantwortung und die Flucht vor der Realität. Es geht um die passive Betrachtung der Realität und das Warten.



A BIG BIG ROOM FULL OF EVERYBODY’S HOPE is performed by three generations of a single family. Through language, movement, and song, the piece offers choreographies for living in the aftermath of violence. An intergenerational production of Amit Noy.

The Project

The dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch made history: in dance, theatre and throughout the arts. Her unique work and artistic legacy enjoy the status of national cultural heritage. To keep this heritage alive, and provide new ways to access it, the Pina Bausch Centre is planned at Wuppertal’s former municipal theatre, the Schauspielhaus.

Architectural Realisation

The Schauspielhaus, Wuppertal’s former municipal theatre, was Pina Bausch’s favourite venue. She created the majority of her works for this stage. Now protected as a historic monument, yet still highly modern in feel, five decades after the building was first opened it has been offered a new future as part of the planned Pina Bausch Centre. On the basis of the plans for its use, Wuppertal council’s facilities management has created a project sketch for the architectural realisation of the idea.
