Bandoneon. Working with Pina Bausch by Raimund Hoghe with photography by Ulli Weiss, translated by Penny Black, edited by Katalin Trencsényi (London: Oberon Books, 2016)

Thomas Kampe


This book, edited by Katalin Trencsényi and published by Oberon Books in 2016, is an excellent resource on the work of the late German choreographer Pina Bausch (1940–2009). The core of the book is a new translation of rehearsal diaries documented by dance-dramaturg and performance maker Raimund Hoghe, accompanied by photos by Ulli Weiss, who both worked with Bausch and the Tanztheater Wuppertal on the production of the piece Bandoneon in 1980. This book is an edited extension of the original German book, published in 1981 under the title Bandoneon – für was kann Tango alles gut sein?
