The trailer for this film asks ‘Is it Dance? Is it Theatre? Or is it simply life?’ We move to Rheged for this week to find out in this marvellous 3D tribute to Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders. Bausch was a German choreographer who was a leading influence in the modern development of ‘Tanztheater’ - dance theatre. Wenders sets out to deliberately use 3D to explore the use of space on a stage as part of choreography and ‘proves that the third dimension can be much more than icing on the cake’ - Tim Robey, Telegraph. The film began as a collaboration with Bausch herself, until her unfortunate death before it was completed. Expect lots of dancing from Bausch’s major works, but also expect to see the dancers move out into the streets of Wuppertal to bring her ideas to life.

We will be organising transport to Rheged...and why not stop for a meal afterwards? Watch this space...
