Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch (DE)

Masurca Fogo

A kiss can miss its intended target, a woman learns to fly but is prohibited from speaking. A watermelon smashes, and the lady in the balloon costume has something to say… Southern atmosphere and pure joie de vivre pair with the fine wisdom of melancholy and great music in this masterpiece of one of the most important choreographers of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Dance theatre legend Pina Bausch created Masurca Fogo in 1998 in cooperation with the EXPO in Lisbon. A little later, a dance passage from this humorous miracle of dance, text, video and dramaturgical verve found its way into Pedro Almodovar’s famous movie Talk to Her. Now, Masurca Fogo is back and finally presented in Vienna – a gentle and pensive commemoration of the great German choreographer, who died ten years ago.
