STAGES INTO THE NOW

A Solo for Scott Jennings / New piece

NEW PIECE

STAGES INTO THE NOW is both a series of films and a solo for Scott Jennings, the former acclaimed dancer in Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal.

In the solo for and with Scott Jennings a history that is referred to this solo, we weave the past and present in a choreographic encounter with Wuppertal and its opera house that was abandoned during the pandemic and devastated in the 2021 floods. A dance as a dream-like setting bringing us in a state of drift and into a subtle dialogue with Pina Bausch, Else Lasker-Schüler and Laurie Anderson.
