    I've had many great experiences watching dance. Some of it hits me viscerally; some choreographers inspire me to leap for joy. There are few that allow me to feel exposed and vulnerable from my seat. That's Pina Bausch to me. Her choreography consistently displayed the difficulty in allowing oneself to love, to be open to love, and to move within those painful contours of experience. I'll miss her and her creative spirit.

    Thanks for sharing this information. I have been lucky to see a couple of her works at the National Arts Centre here in Ottawa. There is no one of her stature, and she definitely will leave a huge void in the dance world.

    She is such a powerhouse in her body. Her vulnerable frailty is what I think of as strength. It still hasn't really hit me.
