Last Chance to see "Economy"

The Northern Manhattan Photographers are holding a closing party on the last day of the exhibit "Economy."

Pina Bausch 1940 - 2009

“She is one of the greatest innovators of the past 50 years. Pina needs to examine the world this way. She is a category of dance unto herself. Dance-theater didn't really exist before she invented it."

American choreographer William Forsythe

"To like or not to like Miss Bausch's work is not the issue. Likable is not a word that applies. She holds one's interest.”

Anna Kisselgoff, dance reviewer for The New York Times

According to a statement on Tanztheater… Continue
