The relationships between women and men - seduction, happiness and misery, physical and mental fragility - are explored in the inimitable style of the great Pina Bausch. In each life-affirming scene dancers tell stories, flirt, fight, decry, seduce and abandon each other.

Revelling in life's inherent humour, Pina Bausch's unique concept of dance theatre creates beautiful, ambiguous imagery that mixes glamour and movement with a raft of recurring props - from water and fruit to chairs and dirt - creating ever-changing visual collages that balance on a knife-edge between reality and surrealism.

One of her final works, Sweet Mambo is an exciting combination of solos and ensemble dances, gentle gestures and sumptuous costumes as dreams, sorrows and anecdotes unfold.
