I looked for information in the book Pina Bausch Dance Theatre, and tried to understand the key themes that her work explores and what drove her choreography. Here are some that I feel expressed her work the best:

“I'm not so interested in how people move as in what moves them.”

"has produced a body of work unique in its dark power and imaginative scale. The pieces are surreal and dreamlike, intensely detailed in construction" http://www.theguardian.com/stage/2008/feb/17/dance.modernism 

Her performances are about human beings and how they relate with society, about the experiences- above all those of the body- accumulated since childhood.

"Love and happiness, desire and loss, memory, dream and reality"
