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.
