100-Word Review: “Pina”

My opinions on dance have already been discussed – if you can’t tell me a story, it feels hollow. But Pina – in memory of choreographer Pina Bausch, with touches of documentary – elevates the form by fidelity to the uniqueness of the piece, and not just the movements. The locations, rendered beautifully and necessarily in 3-D, range from highway underpasses to ephemeral floating rooms – while the performances are infinitely inventive, whether it’s blind dancers in a room full of chairs or just watching a woman trying to prevent her lover’s escape. My mind drifted occasionally, but fascinating overall.
