8-13 July 2005. In Fur die Kinder von Gestern, Heute und Morgen, choreography by Pina Bausch. A native American myth, representing the best inside us all, was in part Pina Bauschs inspiration for Fur die Kinder von Gestern, Heute und Morgen ("For the Children of Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow"). The work takes shape in a series of non-linear vignettes ranging from funny, to bizarre, to beautiful. For more than 30 years and in more than 35 full-length works, Pina Bausch has established her own style of contemporary dance through the development of her dance theatre. She has aimed to define human existence, from its mundane to its magnanimity, in loss, love and ageing. In her unique way, she delves into the extremes of human feeling using speech or danced phrases, repeated actions, and simple gestures. Fur die Kinde has a cast of 14 dancers, a musical collage by Matthias Burkert, and set design by Peter Pabst. The topic of children is an important one to Bausch who sees them as a symbol of hope whose fragility is shared by all. The piece is about unearthing innocence in complicated times.
