Episode 1: Pau Aran Gimeno - Dancing with Fierce Love
“Dance for love”
That is what Pina Bausch told Pau early on when he began dancing in her company, Tanztheater Wuppertal in 2005. He has taken this advice to heart and it shows in his passion and curiosity for the process of making and performing dance. Pau Aran is a choreographer, dance teacher, and performer based mostly in Germany, but he frequently travels to pursue collaborations and other artistic projects.
In this conversation, we go deep into his childhood influences and how they are present in his work today, how he is working on developing his own movement language after having worked with many different masters over the years, being a warrior for your art, and, of course, his ongoing love affair with dance itself.
