Água (2001)


BRAZILIAN FEVER
LIGHTHEARTEDNESS, COLOUR, AND RHYTHMS SPICE THE UNINTERRUPTED FLOW OF THIS PIECE FROM THE VOYAGER, PINA BAUSCH.


A fireplace, elsewhere. From Viktor in 1986, leaving the port of Wuppertal where she had moored the Tanztheatre troupe, Pina Bausch surrendered to the desire of sailing – from Madrid to Hong Kong, from India to Chile, she was imbued with geographic flavours in the same way that we’re nourished by food, with her dancers, a rampant choreographic and theatrical imagination. Created in 2001 after a three-month sojourn in Brazil, Água belongs to this cycle of voyaging pieces. Lightheartedness, colour, and rhythms spice the uninterrupted flow, irrigated by a musical chain where the sense of a celebration alternates with the sung essence of tropical blues. In Água, the dance is in tune with the feverishness of Brazil, but beyond the clichés, Pina Bausch doesn’t forget to leave her signature. At once tender and ironic.
