Bandoneon: Working with Pina Bausch Raimund Hoghe



A translation of Raimund Hoghe’s original rehearsal diary that documented the Tanztheater Wuppertal’s work on Bandoneon (1981), illustrated with photos of the production by Ulli Weiss, and personal images and notes from the dancers. This unique writing records the method Pina Bausch developed and used as seen by one of her close collaborators, Raimund Hoghe, who worked as dramaturg for the company for a decade (1979 – 1989). It follows the work from the first day in rehearsals to its premiere, chronicling the process with artistic sensibility – Bausch’s famous questions, the dancers’ responses and Hoghe’s own reflections as the piece develops. This important document sees its first English language publication, and is succinctly translated by Penny Black. The diary is accompanied by an Introduction and a Portrait by Katalin Trencsenyi, following Hoghe’s journey from being a journalist to becoming an internationally acknowledged dancer-choreographer. Bandoneon is essential reading for anyone who is interested in the work of Pina Bausch and Raimund Hoghe.
