The choreographic genius of Pina Bausch celebrated by German Post

June 30th, 2015 hurries to inform our readers that German Post has prepared for releasing a special commemorative stamp to mark 75 years since the birth of Pina Bausch – one of the greatest German dancers. The item is to be put on sale on the 1st of July.

Philippina "Pina" Bausch was a German performer of modern dance, choreographer, dance teacher and ballet director.

With her unique style, a blend of movement, sound, and prominent stage sets, and with her elaborate collaboration with performers during the development of a piece (a style now known as Tanztheater), she became a leading influence in the field of modern dance from the 1970s on. She created the company Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch (de) which performs internationally.
