The company that exploded the possibilities of dance, Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal, returns to BAM for the first time in six years with a US premiere from the late visionary choreographer. Created during a residency in Brazil in 2001, Bausch refracted the landscapes, sounds, movements, and music she encountered into a color-saturated fantasy. While infused with hints of danger, there is a joyfulness here that stands out among Bausch’s oeuvre, highlighting the legendary choreographer at her most exuberant.
A virtuosic work performed with fearless abandon, Água offers all audience members—from longtime fans to curious newcomers—the pleasure of immersing themselves in Bausch’s utterly singular vision.
