Pina Bausch

In 2010 Wim Wenders produced and directed a movie on the dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch. As it is put, it is not a documentary movie "on" but "for" Pina, who died in 2009, leaving one of the most successful dance theatres and ensembles in Wuppertal. It is complicated in China to see such movies, so I took the chance to watch it while in Germany (not in the original 3D version though). It is a brilliant documentary and brings me back to memories with dancers in the Sauerland, where you would not expect such brilliance at first sight. But you do. Still today, the Tanztheater Pina Bausch is performing in a class of its own. No contest, even the head figure has passed away.
