I urge anyone and everyone to run out to your corner store and purchase today's New York Times for no other reason than to read a wonderful article about Pina Bausch.<P>The depth and pain of the choreography together with the eclectic influences from Tudor to Graham with a little Fellini thrown is fascinating and warrants further discussion.

This really proves my point that critics can really differ in their opinions. It is amazing that the NY Times can have a positive review of Pina Bausch while the SF Chronicle's review was not very complimentary.

The NY Times was not a review, but rather a look into the "minds eye" of the creator. I was really interested with the concept that it is an artists duty to be "political."<P>A great line in the article: "The formalistsn accused Ms. Bausch of being a feminist, and the feminist (myself included [ed. the author, not me])accused her of being a nihilist".<P>Magic!

The article is a retrospective of Pina Bausch's choreography. The article said she has softened over the years. I wish I had seen more of her works.

And its written by a professor at U of Texas who seems to have made her a major area of study for her classes. The influences all interwoven really point in the direction great dance is moving, although most never get there. When someone who speaks so many languages they can either sound sophisicated or disjointed. I think someone like Mark Morris who slowly expands his pallet into ballet shows how much respect you must give before a foray into a different "Language."

I just skimmed it. After they take it down, you have to pay to retrieve it from their archives. Hmmh!

We'll have to see, but given that it is a Sunday article, it might stay up longer in that it is not over-written each day. Enough of idle speculation - let's see what happens. I shall edit it out when the link no longer works.<P>The article is interesting, but it does read a bit like an M.Phil thesis. <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited 11-01-1999).]

Dance Nut, to get the article from the NY Times archive site will cost $2.50. Does your local library keep old Newspapers?
