This week I have seen the new film about Pina Bausch twice and have been inspired and amazed both times. The film is called Pina. A German dancer and choreographer, she seems to have been a woman of few words, expressing herself instead through her own body and that of her dancers. The body is used to express that which is beyond words, underneath words. Surely a connection here with something I'm attempting to do in the studio with my figures. But she is a master. As she said to one of her dancers: you've just got to get crazier. See the film and you'll know what she meant.
