Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch – Viktor – London

★★★★✰   It’s impossible to make coherent sense of a Bausch piece, whatever the source of her inspiration.

Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch – Ahnen – London

Expecting the unexpected comes with the territory of any production by Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and so even unplanned events can seem to be part of the show.

Once again, the performers of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch win over the audience with an apparently effortless ease…. Anna Wehsarg – a gorgeous statuesque redhead with legs that go on forever – can just walk on the stage, gazing into the audience and she has me captured.

With every Bausch work some of the images and sketches stick in the mind and linger as the particular flavour of the piece, and these will vary for every audience member. For me, it was how tough it is being a woman in Nur Du.

…the 30-strong company, which has one of the widest ranges in dancer age I’ve seen, is sensational to watch… For these cameos, and others, I’m glad I caught up with Viktor, but once is enough for a good while.
