It’s been three long years, but choreographer Pina Bausch returns to the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Nov. 16 with "Fur die Kinder von gestern, heute und morgen (For the Children of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow)." And while the piece’s title might be a mouthful for non-German speakers, Bausch’s contemporary dance works, such as "Masurca Fogo" - seen at BAM in 2001, tap into everyone’s shared humanity with glorious collages of movement, music, dialogue and stage design.

"For the Children" (pictured) is a multigenerational ode to dancers at each stage of their lives set against scenery designed by Peter Pabst and music compiled by Matthias Burkert and Andreas Eisenschneider. BAM is the only venue in the United States to see Bausch’s work, and it marks the 20th anniversary of her BAM debut.

Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch will perform "For the Children" Nov. 16 and Nov. 18-20, at 7:30 pm, and Nov. 21, at 3 pm, in the BAM Opera House (30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place). Tickets are $25, $50 and $75. For tickets and more information, call (718) 636-4100 or visit the Web site at
