Some time ago, Amon was approached to contribute several pieces of music for an innovative dance theatre performance titled 'Vollmond (Full Moon)' by the late celebrated German avant-garde dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch. The work was staged at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in Fall 2010 and left audiences absolutely floored.

Renowned German film director Wim Wenders, known for such modern classics as Paris, Texas, Wings of Desire, and Buena Vista Social Club, created a truly breathtaking film paying tribute Ms Bausch's fearless artistic spirit titled Pina. The film features works by the late choreographer interwoven in a visually arresting manner in 3D. An avid supporter of Amon's music, Wenders used several of Amon's tracks as part of the heart-stopping soundtrack for the film.

Pina has its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) in February 2011. Official theatrical release in Germany will be on 2/24/11 with more release dates worldwide to follow.
