Pina Bausch from Wed

Sadler's Wells

For 25 years now, the choreographer Pina Bausch's Tanztheater Wuppertal has been entrancing audiences the world over, but it has not been to London since 1982. Trained dancers who speak and act, Bausch's performers present sketches, games and sequences of beautiful movement, mixing genres on the principle that any medium is valid if it best serves the message. Old, young and colourfully individual, they show you life - theirs, yours, mine. They remind you of your childhood, then crystalise your adult longings and fears. They make you feel that you know and love them. For London, they bring Viktor, one of Bausch's bigger pieces. Unmissable if you can get a ticket.

Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Sadler's Wells, Rosebery Avenue, London EC1 (0171-863 8000) Wed to Sat 30 Jan, 7.15pm
