Pina Bausch dreams

A dance documentary will also take place this Wednesday, October 3rd at the French Institute in Athens. A movie about the amazing German dancer and choreographer  Pina Bausch. In the film, which practically is Pina’s last appearance on screen, we watch the choreographer gathering teenagers from different social backgrounds and religious beliefs who agree to participate in her show.
