Pina Bausch, June 30, age 68: Bausch was a German choreographer who combined potent drama and dreamlike movement to create Tanztheater, a powerful form of modern dance that influenced generations of choreographers and dancers. "When I first began choreographing, I never thought of it as choreography but as expressing feelings," she told The New York Times in 1985. "Though every piece is different, they are all trying to get at certain things that are difficult to put into words."
