In this podcast with Norwegian choreographer Alan Lucien Øyen, we discuss the work and company of one of the most important choreographers of the twentieth century, Pina Bausch.
Alan Lucien Øyen is one of two choreographers (along with Dimitris Papaioannou) who has been given the honour of creating a new piece with the company Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, following the death of Pina Bausch a decade ago.
Listen to Alan talk about his experience of working with the 36 dancers from 3 generations in the same studio where Pina's unique and extraordinary creative process changed the dance world.
Alan gives us a glimpse into this astounding company that continues to push the creative boundaries of dance and shares how he immersed himself with the artists to create Bon Voyage, Bob, being premiered in London at Sadler's Wells.
