The fascinating contrasts and complexities of Brazil form the inspiration for Água; a joyous homage to a paradise of swaying palm trees, sultry jungles and stalking leopards.

Água journeys from beach to rainforest and back again in a playful work brimming with joie de vivre. Dancers are illuminated by fairy lights and men and women splash playfully like children on the beach; Água exemplifies all that is best in Pina Bausch’s profound and playful brand of dance theatre.

Premiere 12 May 2001 and now performed at the Barbican theatre as part of London 2012 Festival.
