This week in Paris, Tanztheater Wuppertal will perform Pina Bausch’s NEFÉS.
“During her travels, Bausch loved nothing better than to immerse herself totally using all her senses in the towns where she stayed. The interplay of light and shade on the Bosphorus, the colors and scents of the flamboyant metropolis of Istanbul, at the crossroads of so many beliefs, inspired this ballet in the early 2000s…
“This immersive show is striking in its power, energy, and emotional message which connects with everyone, be they dancer or spectator.”*
TANZTHEATER WUPPERTAL—NEFÉS, through July 12.
