Pina and Cafe Muller - 1992 written in Wuppertal (on Tony Cragg's typewriter)

Just came across this 1992 article, the first article I ever wrote on Pina Bausch, from Wuppertal. Actually it was the first article I ever wrote on Contemporary Dance. It appeared in the Autumn edition of the now defunct magazine "Theatre Ireland". Hard to believe I typed this up on sculptor Tony Cragg's typewriter (winner of Venice Biennale who lives in Wuppertal). But that's another story. I'm just reminiscing about what a privileged time I had at the heart of the Tanztheater Wuppertal. So thought I would scan it in and post it up in memory of Pina Bausch. Just click on the scanned magazine page to enlarge it so it is readable.
