If you did not get any luck at the lottery for the London Olympic Games, there are plenty more reasons to come to London next summer. Here is a good one & there are still some tickets left:
Pina Bausch‘ Dance Company, Tanztheater Wuppertal will be performing a serie titled World Cities the month leading to the Olympics, in honour of the upcoming games. While Ms Bausch, the Grande Dame of modern dance, died in 2009, her company still carries her legacy. This serie is an ambitious staging of the choreographer’s 10 works inspired by cities.
Viktor (Rome) – Nur Du (Los Angeles) – Como el musguito en la piedra, ay si, si, si (Santiago de Chile)
Ten Chi (Saitama) – Der Fensterputzer (Hong Kong) – Bamboo Blues (Kolkata)
Nefes (Istanbul) – Agua (Sao Paulo) – Palermo Palermo (Palermo)- Wiesenland (Budapest)
Honestly, you don’t need to be an adept of modern dance to appreciate Bausch’ work. I have taken my husband several times and even he has enjoyed it (!) You can book tickets here.
