Keeping the artistic legacy alive of the dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch and carrying it on into the future is the task of the Pina Bausch Foundation. After Bausch's death, her son Salomon established the charitable Pina Bausch Foundation on August 3rd, 2009 in which he has placed her entire artistic legacy in accordance with her wishes.
