“… como el musguito en la piedra, ay si, si, si …”
(Like moss on a stone)
A piece by Pina Bausch
Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch

“[Pina Bausch’s] explosively emotional and intensely theatrical productions were adored by audiences around the globe…”
—The Times (UK)

With her passing in 2009, legendary dance-theater pioneer Pina Bausch (the subject of Wim Wenders' Academy Award-nominated film tribute earlier this year) left behind an indelible legacy. This fall, Bausch's company returns to BAM—its exclusive New York home—to present a very special engagement of the choreographer's final work, a singular artistic achievement that resonates with its maker's keen observation and profound grace.

Set to the contemplative sounds of Chilean folk legend Violeta Parra and guitarist Victor Jara, como el musguito conjures Chile's social dances, distinctive musical tradition, and bustling capital metropolis, while emanating a calm, reflective beauty.

Directed and choreographed by Pina Bausch
Set design by Peter Pabst
Costume design by Marion Cito
Musical collaborators Matthias Burkert and Andreas Eisenschneider

Premiere June 12, 2009, Wuppertal
Performance Rights Arche Editeur, Paris
