Tuesdays suddenly seem to be a popular day to celebrate the legacy of Pina Bausch. Too bad, I didn't realize this trend before I started teaching jazz classes on Tuesday nights at Impulse Dance Center.
Last night, for instance, while I was leading battements, the Goethe-Institut New York, in collaboration with Dance Films Association, screened Anne Linsel’s documentary, Pina Bausch. If you also missed the NYC event, however, you can catch a short clip of the film here.
Then on November 3rd, the Goethe-Institut Boston, will present A Tribute to Pina Bausch featuring Ella Baff, Executive Director, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and "A Breath with Pina Bausch" directed by Huseyin Karabey. Admission is free but you do want to RSVP to (617) 262-6050 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oh, and please let me know of any other events honoring Pina this fall...especially if they don't occur on a Tuesday.
