Just the ticket

Though they are not playing until October, it's never too early to get tickets to see modern dance company Folkwang Tanzstudio (FTS, left). An artistically independent company, under the direction of modern-dance divas Pina Bausch and Henrietta Horn, FTS' free philosophy has allowed many choreographers to chart their own paths without the need to adhere to a dictated style.
