In Café Müller (1978) – a semi-autobiographical exploration of memory – highly charged and dramatic tension is juxtaposed against arias from Purcell’s operas. InThe Rite of Spring (1975), an earth covered stage sets the scene for 34 dancers who portray the barbaric ritual with gut-wrenching movements, driven by Stravinsky’s score. NOTE: partial nudity. Performance rights: Verlag der Autoren (Frankfurt am Main), representing Pina Bausch Foundation. Music rights: Boosey & Hawkes Bote & Bock GmbH (Berlin), for Hawkes & Son Ltd. (London).
