This popular series of documentary film offers a though-provoking look at visionary artists and individuals pushing both artistic and personal boundaries – challenging or exceeding perceived limitations and setting new paths for performative work. Following each film, share your thoughts during an informal discussion led by experienced guest moderators.

In modern dance since the 1970s, few choreographers have had more influence in the medium than the late Pina Bausch. This film, by Wim Wenders, explores the life and work of this artist of movement while we see her company perform her most notable creations – where basic things like water, dirt and even gravity take on otherworldly qualities in their dancing.
