Presenting the Théâtre de la Ville at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris until July 2 blue beard By Pina Bausch, you must see it.

A piece dating back to 1977, two years after its unforgettable show spring weather… seems to him blue beard It was misunderstood by half the audience at the time, but today it is a classic.

The play is inspired not only by Perrault’s tale but by Bartok’s unique opera, in which a man on stage alone with his young wife in a spacious room full of dead leaves, listens to the obsession of his magnetic tape, in loop, while stopping and rewinding repeatedly. They are alone, but regularly a gang of young men come to haunt the room, sometimes to celebrate and show off, sometimes to lure the couple into a devastating cycle of terrifying impulses. Because the man, three times larger and stronger than the woman (exceptionally Tsai Chen Yu and Oleg Stepanov, alternating with the other dancers) is frightening and violent while clinging to him, trying in vain for tenderness.

It is one of the first creations of the great choreographer (died 2009), almost never re-performed in France, and one of the first “dance theater” that will make it unique. And all the genius of Pina Bausch is already there, her gestures, the women with long loose hair in satin dresses, the men in suits or velvet underwear, the games of seduction and power, sexual control, the inability to communicate, the repetitive gestures, the races, the hugs and the desperate theater of relationships between men and women. Masterpiece.

Seeing this piece in 2022 knowing that it was created in 1977 and in the current context is an explosion… The young troupe of the Tanztheater Wuppertal is now led by choreographer Boris Charmatz.

it is in Chatelet Theater In Paris until July 2.
