Renowned as the inventor of tanztheater, and widely regarded as one of the most significant influences in modern dance, Pina Bausch inspired generations of audiences and artists before her untimely death in 2009.

Featuring the haunting music of Chilean composers including the theatre director, playwright, poet, singer songwriter and political activist Victor Jara, this piece draws from the country's popular music, its politics and culture.

Created with her 21-strong company while touring Northern and Southern Chile, como el musguito... is the last work completed by the choreographer before her death.
