Pina Bausch Dies

from the NY TIMES:

Pina Bausch, the choreographer and exponent of the Neo-Expressionist form of German dance known as Tanztheater, died Tuesday in Wuppertal, Agence France-Presse reported. She was 68. In a review of Ms. Bausch’s “Bamboo Blues” that was performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in December, Alastair Macaulay wrote that her work could be “strikingly picturesque, always fluid in its comings and goings” as it “switches between episodes of sensual impulsiveness; coy, catwalklike audience-awareness; rushing scenes of harrowing need or anxiety; and diverse aspects of melancholia.”
