Scott has completed his 2018 fellowship. From February until April he spent three intensive months with his cooperating partner Marina Mascarell travelling throughout Europe before arriving safely back to Australia. In his reports, Scott gives an delightful insight into his fellowship experience.
It was a celebration when in January the fellows hosted a get to know you event for the Wuppertaler public. The video trailer is now online for all to see especially for those that were unable to attend.
Marie-Lena's Fellowship with Horacio Macuacua has begun. Her first report tells of an intensive time - physically and mentally.
"One month in Mozambique, one month with Macuacua. A different world and a different life. Different rhythms in dance and in everyday life. It is these opposites that are totally present for me here."
The very first recipients of the Pina Bausch Fellowship got started in 2016. We are introducing Anton, Ayelen, Euripides and Jared once more in a short film and show glimpses of their travels during the fellowship.

My working environment is perfectly surrounded with lovely people. I have full access to any class or activity at the department with also personal keys to the premises. (...) I think these 6 months could easily turn out to be the busiest -fun times of my career so far.
I think I was such lucky for having this month with Nora in Zimbabwe. I am lucky to have the chance to be in another African country even traveling between my beloved continents is sometimes even harder than travel across seas to other continents.
In February / March, Mohamed Yousry “Shika” visited choreographer Nora Chipaumire in her home country, Zimbabwe. The 4 week meeting formed the prelude to their cooperation on the concept of the “embodiment” of the “New African Body”.
Shika's fellowship will continue in New York from August 2017.
The first part of his Fellowship with Family Flöz took place in Italy, in the former monastery of San Giusto near Tuscany.
Jared Onyango kicks off the Pina Bausch Fellowship 2016 and travels to Francesco Scavetta and the Wee Company in Oslo, Norway.
