In this startlingly original and visually innovative documentary, Wim Wenders merges dance, theatre and film as a tribute to the ground-breaking work of German choreographer, Pina Bausch (1940-2009).

Bausch pioneered a dance tradition (Tanztheater, ‘dance theatre’) that combined dance-like physicality, experimental sound-design and dramatic stage-sets; she is also known for collaboratively involving dancers in the compositional development of a piece.

The film is separated into four extracts from Bausch’s influential work, interspersed with interviews and site-specific performances, with often dream-like results.

Not only is this a powerfully realised tribute to one of the most influential artists of modern dance, it is also phenomenally arresting example of different mediums coinciding: dance, theatre and film; all collaboratively braided into the kinetic rush of poetic movement.
