The encounter between Pina Bausch and Chantal Akerman is a meeting of sensibilities. Editing side by side scenes from performances and rehearsals from the Tanztheater Wuppertal company while they were in Venice, Milan, and Avignon, with interviews of the dancers and of Pina herself, Akerman manages to evoke the artistic and imaginary universe of the choreographer.
The screening on 28 Sept, co-hosted by the feminist film journal Another Gaze, coincides with the UK release of Chantal Akerman’s book My Mother Laughs. Translator Daniella Shreir will read an excerpt from the book prior to the screening.
