“Hvordan ville du danse, hvis du vidste, at du ville dø?” spurgte koreografen Pina Bausch sine danserne, da hun skabte sin version af Le Sacre du printemps i 1975, hvor et menneske ofres, så foråret kan komme.

Justly, Pina Bausch is considered one of the most important choreographers of the 20th century. During her lifetime, she obtained cult status, when she, with great success, created a new genre in the field between dance and theater at Tanztheater Wuppertal in Germany. Le Sacre du printemps, with its iconic choreography and Igor Stravinsky’s renowned score, is among her very best works.

 

It's a collaboraton between the contemporary dance company École des Sables, Pina Bausch Foundation and Sadler's Wells which has allowed this version of Pina Bausch's Le Sacre du printempsLe Sacre du printemps and for the first time ever it will be performed by African dancers. ‘The first time I heard Stravinsky’s music, I felt, it was an African ritual’, says the artistic director of École des Sables, Germaine Acogny. During København Danser, the company’s version of the famous, sacrificial ritual unfolds dramatically, when dancers from fourteen African countries, will welcome spring on a stage covered in soil.

I Pina Bauschs ånd har Germaine Acogny og Malou Airaudo skabt værket common ground[s].
De lærte begge Pina Bausch at kende gennem dansens verden. Som leder af École des Sables indledte Germaine Acogny et samarbejde med den ikoniske koreograf, mens Malou Airaudo er blandt de oprindelige dansere fra Tanztheater Wuppertal. Selvom både Germaine Acogny og Malou Airaudo er over 70 år i dag, optræder de to legendariske kvinder selv i common ground[s]. Her spejler de sig i hinanden på trods af deres forskellige erfaringer. I mødet mellem Europa og Afrika, Pina Bausch og afrikansk dans forenes kvindernes fortællinger på baggrund af deres fælles grundlag som koreografer, dansere og mødre.
