Viktor: Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch at Sadler’s Wells – 8th to 11th February 2018

Viktor, created by the imaginative and inventive Pina Bausch, returns to Sadler’s Wells from Thursday 8th – Sunday 11th February 2018. The piece, an international co-production with Teatro Argentino and the City of Rome, is performed by the legendary Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch.

In 1986, the city of Rome invited Pina Bausch and her company to make a piece inspired by the Eternal City. Viktor turned out to be the first of Pina Bausch’s epic travelogues, a series which took her company around the world for inspiration-gathering residencies. Living in each city for a period of time, her renowned company would then return to Wuppertal to create a new work inspired by their visit. The piece has previously been performed at Sadler’s Wells in 1999 and again as part of the World Cities series in 2012.

Deep in the muddy depths of a grave which is still being dug, a corpse couple are united in a macabre marriage and a woman is transformed into a water fountain. Viktor is set to music which spans centuries and continents: folk music from Italy, waltzes from Russia and dance music from the Middle Ages to the 1930s. Pina Bausch directed and choreographed Viktor, with set designs by Peter Pabst, costume designs by Marion Cito and music in collaboration with Matthias Burkert.
