WUPPERTAL TANZT is a homage to the dance choreographer Pina Bausch in the public space of the city of Wuppertal and deals with her 15 international dance co-productions and has them individually interpreted by urban artists from the respective co-production cities in the public space of the city of Wuppertal.

WUPPERTAL DANCES are 10 murals for 10 neighborhoods - 10 dance stories, 10 countries, 10 artists, 10 views and 10 vistas... This is a piece of internationality for every Wuppertal neighborhood, a message of understanding, a performance of the different cultures, captured in movement and transformed into art.

These are the images of a woman who set out to explore movement, to set us in motion.

Pina's idea behind her international co-productions was to try to absorb the feeling of a city and its intangible atmosphere and transform it into movement. We want to continue spinning these danced "city identities" in public space: International UrbanArt artists are invited to be inspired by the "Welttheater Pina Bausch" and the international co-productions (15 pieces in total) and to implement them as murals in the urban space of the 10 districts of Wuppertal. The UrbanArt artists come from the cities of the dance co-productions: The cultural coloring of the dance art should be reflected in the cultural coloring of the wall art.
