Description

With 28 dancers / with 2 dancers

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

Bausch's (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 École des Sables and Malou Airaudo who has performed leading roles in many of Bausch's early works. This poetic and tender piece, the duo's first collaboration, examines their shared histories and emotional experiences.
