Synopses & Reviews
Pina Bausch (1940-2009) became a cult figure in the international dance scene with her "Tanztheater Wuppertal" which she both founded and directed. In her choreographies she combined classical dance with elements of performance art, mime, acrobatics,
sports, acting, and song, thereby creating a new art genre that both suited the spirit of the times and, by the artistic radicality of her productions, set the parameters for the future of dance theater. This book offers a unique view of both the film and the stunning oeuvre of revolutionary choreographer Pina Bausch and her legendary dance company.
