  • Who's afraid of Pina Bausch? May 25, 2012 - 5:44 pm
  • The late choreographer and high priestess of Tanztheater Pina Bausch once said she was not interested in how people move but in what moves them.

    As part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, the Barbican Centre and Sadler’s Wells will stage Bausch's 10 Cities.

    Peter Aspden talks to Alistair Spalding, artistic director of Sadler’s Wells and a friend of Bausch, and to FT dance critic Clement Crisp, who “owns to a mistrust of Tanztheater, or dance-theatre, or Euro-tedium – call it what you will.”
