Rite is paired with a new work created, performed and inspired by the lives of two remarkable choreographers, professors and grandmothers: Germaine Acogny, the founder of the Senegalese company École des Sables who is widely considered to be “the mother of contemporary African dance,” and Malou Airuado, who performed leading roles in many of Bausch’s early works as a member of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. This poetic and tender antidote to Rite reflects their shared histories, emotional experiences and common ground.
