Some Pina Bausch

6 08 2008

One of my favorite scenes from a movie is the opening of Pedro Almodóvar’s Hable con Ella (Talk to Her), where it shows Pina Bausch performing a scene from her work, Café Müller. Though I don’t really like Almodóvar’s films all that much, and I don’t like modern dance in general (as opposed to ballet or Indian classical dance), this scene just works for me for some reason. The above is the only clip I can find from the work. It is brief and I apologize for the quality.
