The “lines” are a recurring and characteristic element in many of Pina Bausch's pieces: Sequences of movement with repetitive steps and gestures that the dancers perform standing in a long queue. They often proceed into the audience.

The Pina Bausch Foundation goes one step further with the project “The NELKEN-Line”:

Everyone is welcome to join up and dance the element that is probably the best known line in all of Pina Bausch's works: “Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter” from the 1982 piece “Nelken”. With just a few distinct gestures, the line tells about alternation of the four seasons with dancers proceeding in a long line.

In France, Ireland, Chile, Cyprus, Spain and Germany, dance lovers of all ages – professionals and amateurs – have responded to the call and danced their own individual NELKEN-Line. 

LEARN! The NELKEN-Line

Everyone is invited to dance! Julie Anne Stanzak, a long-time member of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, explains how to do this in the video-tutorial "LEARN!", that you find here.
