Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal

Dancers perform Brazilian inspired Agua

The late great choreographer Pina Bausch lives on through her work and company, as the dancers of Germany’s Tanztheater Wuppertal arrive in Edinburgh to perform Água. Inspired by Bausch’s time in Brazil, the work is filled with striking video images, playfulness and bright theatricality.

Edinburgh Playhouse, 473 2000, 27-29 Aug, 7.30pm, £8-£28.50.


The fascinating contrasts and complexities of Brazil form the inspiration for Água. Pina Bausch's charismatic and eclectic company of dancers transports you from beach to rainforest and then back again in a playful work brimming with joie de vivre. Audio described performance Sunday 29th August.
