Return to our roots with an inflammatory, exuberant Pina Bausch and the deathless songs of Kurt Weill.

What if the first evening of dance by Pina Bausch ever presented in Paris was now her most contemporary work? This is suggested not by Kurt Weill’s music, nor Brecht’s play, which here focuses on women as merchandise, nor even the obvious resonance with the #MeToo movement, but first and foremost the incredible power of the expressionist tableaux that assert the idea of the Tanztheater as a total art for dancers, singers, actors, and visual artists. First staged in 1976, this danced opera was restaged not long ago, with some of the original performers and young dancers who have recently joined this unique ensemble. Which explains the unbridled enthusiasm and excitement that greets the second part, a corrosive and joyous Kurt Weill cabaret that turns every convention upside down.
