Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Palermo Palermo

Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier From February 22 To 25, 2023

The long-awaited return of the 23 performers of Tanztheater Wuppertal, come to rattle the walls of Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier! The bells of Palermo ring out loudly in this iconic work by Pina Bausch, whose imprint remains unequalled. A must-see.

A pivotal piece in Tanztheater Wuppertal’s repertoire, Palermo Palermo is one of a long series of danced portraits of cities choreographed by the late Pina Bausch. In 1989, shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall, the German choreographer, then in residence in Palermo, imagined a collapsing brick wall, a metaphor for “the invisible walls that exist everywhere in the world, inside our heads.” Amid the rubble, male and female dancers with powerful individuality perform a succession of vignettes, in high heels or barefoot. A seismic tremor of unforgettable proportions, Palermo Palermo depicts a shaken humanity in a sensual and colourful Sicily, where the street is an ongoing performance ... Today, a younger generation is taking up the torch alongside familiar members of the troupe to breathe new life into the many characters of this baroque and poetic creation. Stunning.
