Family Friendly, Performance, Streets
Come and see Merseyside Dance Initiative recreate the iconic work of Choreographer Pina Bausch on the steps of the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. As part of a major project, the Pina Bausch Foundation have welcomed groups from around the world to learn the choreography and dance “Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter” from the 1982 piece “Nelken”.
In this processional performance, with just a few distinct gestures, The Nelken Line will use repetitive movements to beautifully represent the four seasons, accompanied by Louis Armstrong’s wonderful recording of West End Blues. MDI will be working with community groups including Youth Dance and 50 Moves, lecturers and students from Liverpool’s universities and colleges, along with professional dance artists based in the City to create Liverpool’s Nelken Line.
