Pina Bausch


Pina Bausch was a German performer of modern dance, choreographer, dance teacher and ballet director.

With her unique style, a blend of movement, sound, and prominent stage sets, and with her elaborate collaboration with performers during the development of a piece (a style now known as Tanztheater), she became a leading influence in the field of modern dance from the 1970s on. She created the company Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch which performs internationally.

Her style has influenced artists such as David Bowie, who designed part of his 1987 Glass Spider Tour with Bausch in mind.

There is no book / There is no set
There is no music / There is only life and us
