Tanztheater Wuppertal’s Fernando Suels Mendoza on what he learned from the great German choreographer Pina Bausch, and how it feels to perform her works.

‘We have a contemporary or ballet class in the morning, then a rehearsal, a break, and a performance or more rehearsals in the evening. The routine and rhythm are very helpful in keeping you going. I have a strong connection to morning class – if I miss it, I feel unprepared for what is coming. I enjoy it very much – we’re all together, starting the day’s journey.’
