For Pina

Longtemps, j’ai pensé que le rôle de l’artiste était de secouer le public. Aujourd’hui, je veux lui offrir sur scène ce que le monde, devenu trop dur, ne lui donne plus : des moments d’amour pur.

Pina Bausch

Until now movement as such has never touched me.
I always regarded it as a given.
One just moves. Everything moves.
Only through Pina’s Tanztheater have I learned to value
movements, gestures, attitudes, behaviour, body language,
and through her work learned to respect them.
And anew every time when, over the years I saw Pina’s pieces, many times and again,
did I relearn, often like being struck by thunder,
that the simplest and most obvious is the most moving at all :
What treasure lies within our bodies, to be able to express itself without words,
and how many stories can be told without saying a single sentence.

Wim Wenders
