Pina Bausch / Germaine Acogny & Malou Airaudo

Sadler’s Wells, London

17 – 20 May 2020

Three eminent artists from different countries explore their common ground as dancers, teachers and women, communicating ideas via movement. Only two of them are actually on stage: Pina Bausch, creator of The Rite of Spring, died in 2009. But her influence lives on, as this revival, performed by dancers from across Africa, demonstrates. Acogny, founder of the École des Sables in Senegal and a seminal figure in African contemporary dance, created the second piece with Airaudo, an alumna of Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal. Performing together, they celebrate similarity and difference, roots and weightlessness, and the power of experience: 148 years of it between them.
