Pina Bausch

 Words fail me.  Pina is electrifying with the boldness of its vision. I was ignorant of Bausch’s importance and influence on modern dance.  Thanks to Wim Wenders, whose intimate knowledge of her oeuvre led him to film the key dances using her company indoors and out, now everyone can know about her.

The settings are crucial to the choreography.  They do not merely provide background or enhance a mood. They become as integral to the performances as the performers themselves.  In some cases, like when they are dancing in water, the water dances too.
