, one of the foremost choreographers
of the last thirty years, died June 30th.
Over the three decades she lead the Tanz-theater Wuppertal
attracted an international following with its complex mix of theatricality
, and often pointed
depictions of the relationships between men and women.
It's difficult to convey through film and video the impact dance can have and often Bausch filled the stage with activity, but this
clip (watched to the end), shows one of those gems, if not it's setting.
In 2006 this
documentary was made for German TV (sadly it's not sub-titled) and also has quite a few excerpts from her work.
