Constantly expanding her horizons, and yet remaining at one with herself; searching, undeterred, within herself, her dancers, life – what moves us, who we are, where we live – with so much energy and patience, again and again, finding, searching anew, examining everything precisely, laughing a lot: that was Pina.
The pieces are preliminary findings, evidence of her search, expressed directly by the body. Dance. Life. This search has always existed and will always exist, but what Pina had was the courage to listen to her feelings, to trust them. That is what she gave – to her dancers, her audience, her friends.
This courage, to listen to yourself, never giving up: this is what we want to pass on.
We have only just begun.
