One of the most amazing choreographers and dancers of our times, who revolutionized the contemporary dance, Pina Bausch died today at the age of 68, an unexpected death, after a cancer diagnosis. A loss to us all, of beauty, of her imagery which made us, who had the chance to assist to her plays marvel and dream.

Danke, Pina.

  1. May she RIP. I lost my own mother last Friday evening so I know how her family must be feeling. Both too young to die...

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss, Ironside, my heartfelt condolences to you and to your family. I can't imagine the pain and suffering of loosing a mother, if I lost mine, which I love and is my best friend... it's just a terrible thought.

    a hug with friendship,
