The first-ever biography in English of Pina Bausch: perhaps the most influential performer and choreographer of the twentieth century. Bausch was notoriously shy about discussing her work, yet Mayer's accessible account penetrates the mystique and mythology surrounding Pina's life. As well as illuminating her personal life and her work ethic, it also takes stock of Bausch's legacy and the future for the Company she created.

About the Author:

Pina Bausch was born 1940 in Solingen and died 2009 in Wuppertal. She received her dance training at the Folkwang School in Essen under Kurt Jooss, where she achieved technical excellence. Soon after the director of Wuppertal's theatres, Arno Wustenhofer, engaged her as choreographer, from autumn 1973, she renamed the ensemble the Tanztheater Wuppertal. Under this name, although controversial at the beginning, the company gradually achieved international recognition. Its combination of poetic and everyday elements influenced the international development of dance decisively. Awarded some of the greatest prizes and honours world-wide, Pina Bausch is one of the most significant choreographers of our time.

Review:

'Her work undoubtedly constitutes a high watermark in the creativity of the twentieth century, but it's also something more important than that: she is a wellspring for generations of artists in every imaginable medium. She wrote much of the language in which we all speak.' Barney Norris author of Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain
