What is The Rite of Spring / common ground[s] about?
The Rite of Spring is a Bausch seminal 1975 piece and will be performed as the first piece by a dance company of newly assembled dancers from African countries. The second piece will come from the founder of École des Sables, Germaine Acogny, aka “the mother of contemporary African dance”, along with Malou Airaudo, who had many central dance roles when she was a performer for the Tanztheater Wuppental Pina Bausch. The pair took inspiration from their personal experiences as mothers, professors and choreographers; which is clearly reflected in this work which highlights their common ground.
