Bausch classic on line from the beach

SADLER’S Wells will be streaming the Pina Bausch adaptation of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring for the whole month of July, raising funds for the north London theatre.

Dancing at Dusk, starting at noon on Wednesday 1st July, was filmed on the beach at Toubab Dialaw, Senegal, just before the world moved into lockdown. It was made as the specially assembled company of 38 dancers from 14 African countries was rehearsing for a world tour. This was their final rehearsal.

The streaming provides is a rare opportunity to watch one of the world’s greatest dance works in a unique and beautiful setting, and the £5 charge will go to support the artists, the future life of the production, and Sadler’s Wells.
