I jump at any chance to see Pina Bausch’s work, and so I’m thrilled to hear the rumour that we may be treated to a retrospective of all her works in the London 2012 Festival – she told The Independent.
I think I’ll go to all of them. I also hugely admire my friend Kim Brandstrup’s work, and adored his new piece at the Royal Opera House last year. He was the choreographer for my ‘Death in Venice’ and spends a lot of time trying to convert me to classical ballet. I’m not there yet!
