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.
