Wenders’ Pina: Dance Crazy

In the 1980s, when Pina Bausch’s Wuppertal Tanztheater Company made its early tours of Europe and the U.S., the reaction was sensational: high praise and hot denunciations. Her skits, often involving the repetition of violent physical movement, inspired a full generation of avant-dancers and choreographers. Bausch so wowed Federico Fellini that he cast her as the blind duchess in his 1983 film And the Ship Sails On; in 2002, Pedro Almodóvar would include scenes of Bausch’s “Café Müller” and “Masurca Fogo” in Talk to Her.
