We’re so very excited to share that there’s a new installment coming to Sadler’s Wells Digital Stage series next month and we promise, it’s one you won’t want to miss!
The new addition, Dancing at Dusk – A moment with Pina Bausch’s The Rite of Spring, offers a special insight into the restaging of Pina Bausch’s groundbreaking 1975 work.
It was filmed as the world went into lockdown and captures the last rehearsal of a specially assembled company of 38 dancers from 14 African countries. It also documents a unique moment in their preparations for an international tour.
Alistair Spalding, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells, said: “We are so delighted to be able to bring this unique film to audiences across the world. Coronavirus has had a profound impact everywhere, and for us, has sadly resulted in the postponement of much of our work, including The Rite of Spring. Despite this, the company seized the opportunity to capture this powerful, one-of-a-kind moment, which feels very much in harmony with the spirit of Pina Bausch. Perhaps now more than ever, this type of international collaboration is how Sadler’s Wells responds best to the difficult times we are in, bringing our artists and audiences together once again”
This is a rare opportunity to watch one of the world’s greatest dance works and will be available to global audiences via Sadler’s Wells’ Digital Stage from 12.00pm BST on Wednesday 1 July 2020, at the price of £5. Proceeds will help to support the artists, the future life of the production, and Sadler’s Wells.
