the first European festival on creativity

2011 Programme

Evento n.25

Gianfranco Capitta, Pippo Delbono

Pina’s step

Two years after the death of the great dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch, Capitta and Delbono tell of her artistic career with the help of pictures, videos, and the testimony of some who have met her personally. It is becoming increasingly evident how this great artist has influenced all forms of performance and all stage languages, as well as their public perception. Pina Bausch started out as a ballet dancer and later created the Tanztheater, a truly original experience that enabled her to investigate the pleasure and the pain of every single member of her audience. Her sensitivity has become a sort of watershed for every new kind of performance and every new form of entertainment: dance, theater and other arts were never the same again after her. With her sometimes light, sometimes violent step that crossed all disciplines, she has traveled and reflected the cities of the world.


Gianfranco Capitta

is a visual arts critic and writes for il manifesto daily. He has written essays about his favorite stage personalities, in particular Harold Pinter. He is keen on making theater known through the radio and tv. He has written the four parts of the tv
series Atto unico on the newer generation of Italian playwrights. He has also designed a number of festivals, such as the Orestiadi, staged in Gibellina, Sicily, from 1999 to 2004, and was responsible for the project of the National Drama Festival of Naples (2007). His books include Interpretazione e creatività, written with stage and screen actor Toni Servillo and published by Laterza in 2008 in their ‘Festival della Mente’ series.

Pippo Delbono

is an Italian author, actor and stage director. In the early Eighties he founded his own theater company and produced all of his shows, from Il tempo degli assassini (1987) to La Menzogna (2008). He won the 1997 UBU Prize with his Barboni. In 1987 Pina Bausch invited him to take part in one of her productions at the Tanztheater in Wuppertal. His works have been staged in theaters and festivals in over 50 countries. His 2003 documentary Guerra won the David di Donatello award.
