“Sweet Mambo” Tanztheater Wuppertal – the penultimate work by Pina Bausch

Pina Bausch’s body of work is one of the most acclaimed worldwide. As the founder of Tanztheater Wuppertal, Bausch is often credited as the mother of a unique genre of dance and theatre, that conquers almost all who have the fortune to come in touch with it. Over a thirty-six year period Bausch created forty-four full-length works altogether, accompanied in the creation of the pieces by her large ensemble and her steady collaborators.
