7:30 pm PINA  | $8 or $6 for members of the Colonial

Magnificent, breathtaking, mysterious. A tribute to choreographer Pina Bausch. A cinematic eulogy. An immersive, gorgeously shot tribute to the people who express life through movement. Pina is a feature-length dance film with the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, featuring the unique and inspiring art of the great German choreographer, who died in 2009. Wim Wenders takes the audience on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery into a new dimension: straight onto the stage with the legendary ensemble, he follows the dancers out of the theatre into the city and the surrounding areas of Wuppertal-the place, which for 35 years was the home and centre for Pina Bausch’s creativity.  Opens on Sunday, Aug 12th and runs through Wednesday, August 15th
“This meditation on movement and space, transportation and transcendence is not to be missed.” -Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
