A witty, sensual evocation of courtship rituals staged in a 1930s dance hall.

Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Le Sacre du printemps

Théâtre des Champs-Elysées - Paris

Recently, I had the great chance to see the Tanztheater Wuppertal perform Pina Bausch’s version of Stravinsky’s Le sacre du printemps, in Paris. It was so powerful and poetic, I’ll always remember it.

The ballet itself was preceded by a documentary showing Pina Bausch leading one of her dancers and working the final solo with her. A very interesting process to watch.
