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.

Nelken by Pina Bausch - “The Man I Love” excerpt

Performed here by Lutz Förster

A very poor quality of a very powerful performance. The whole show is beyond words and I was lucky enough to see it tonight in Paris. Though, I still don’t really get why people laughed at this particular moment, like in the video.
