Dancing At Dusk – A Moment with Pina Bausch’s The Rite of Spring

The Lowry hosted the wonderful conference and performance series Re:Generations last autumn, which brought together dancers from across Africa and the African diaspora.

This spring 38 dancers from across Africa learned and rehearsed a new versions of Pina Bausch’s seminal Rite of Spring in Senegal.

The show was nearly ready as Covid-19 hit and the ensemble had to disperse again. Their London shows along the rest of the tour were sadly cancelled. Luckily, a last rehearsal took place on the beach in Toubab Dialaw.

This film tells the story of the company’s final rehearsals and getting ready for international touring. Now available to watch from 1 – 31 July.
