Vollmond is a masterstroke. In one of her most celebrated works, the legendary Pina Bausch created a lush expression of the rapturous effects of the full moon. Her ingenious choreography explores love and lust, conflict and courtship, and simple humanity. The high tides of the lunar cycle dramatically transform the stage with crescendos of water -– pouring from above, thrown in wide arcs, flowing across the scene –- saturating her outstanding dancers in sensual and breathless performances.

Prominently featured in Wim Wenders’ film PINA, you will not want to miss the live experience of this spectacular and accessible work.
