dancer, choreographer and teacher
Internationally acclaimed dancer Pau Aran Gimeno is creating, teaching and collaborating on post-national trans-disciplinary dance ventures as an independent choreographer, while dancing with the Tanztheater Wuppertal – Pina Bausch ensemble since 2006.
Born by the catalan mediterranean shores, Pau began his professional performance career through ballroom dancing and modern-jazz, where his interest expanded towards manifold forms of expressive movement.
While his studies at the Conservatorio Profesional De Danza ‘Mariemma’, Madrid, Pau was exceptionally invited to attend the Folkwang Universität der Künste, Essen Germany, when in concomitance he commenced his most significant training in Wuppertal – under the direction of Pina Bausch from 2005 until her untimely passing.
Aran Gimeno danced in more than 25 of Pina’s productions, and continues to dance with her illustrious idiosyncratic ensemble, Tanztheater Wuppertal – Pina Bausch ever since.
As an independent artist since 2013, Pau engages in deepening his personal movement language through organic cross-disciplinary collective endeavors worldwide, and by conducting creative workshops among diverse artists and communities.
