Felia Doubrowksa Remembered
Virginia Brooks, USA, 2008 37 min.
Born in 1896 in St. Petersburg, Russia, Felia Doubrovska spent 33 years first as a student at the Imperial Ballet School and then as a famous ballerina. After her retirement from the stage she devoted nearly the same span of time to teaching at the School of American Ballet. This film provides an affectionate memorial and a tribute to an artist who made a great contribution to preserving the ballet tradition as she participatedin the training of many of the women of the New York City Ballet, the instruments of George Balanchine's choreographic genius.
The film will be introduced by the director Virginia Brooks.
Anne Linsel, Germany, 2006, 44min.
Before choreographer Pina Bausch and her Tanz-theater Wuppertal were known around the world, her new, unusual and original body language was ill-received. In the early days the audience, (and most critics) were irritated and confused. Tumultuous scenes in the audience were not unusual. Pina Bausch speaks about the beginnings of the Tanztheater and the inescapable path she felt she had to follow. She talks about rehearsals, her pieces (more than 30 by now), her co-productions with other cities and countries and being on tour.
