THE RITE OF SPRING / COMMON GROUND[S]

February 02,2024

Charleston Gaillard Center

Details

The idea of exchange is central in this two-part programme which marks the first collaboration between the Pina Bausch Foundation (Germany), cole des Sables (Senegal) and Sadlers Wells (UK).

Bauschs (1975) The Rite of Spring is danced by a newly assembled company of dancers from African countries. In this pioneering work, with music by Stravinsky, a chosen one is sacrificed changing the season from winter to spring.

common ground[s] is a new work created, performed and inspired by the lives of two remarkable women: Germaine Acogny, the mother of contemporary African dance and founder of cole des Sables and Malou Airaudo who joined Bausch in the early days of Tanztheater Wuppertal and later was a professor and director at Folkwang University. This poetic and tender piece, the duos first collaboration, examines their shared histories and emotional experiences
