Bluebeard. While Listening to a Tape Recording of Béla Bartók’s Opera “Duke Bluebeard’s Castle”, is one of Pina Bausch’s fundamental early masterpieces. 43 years after its world Premiere, the Tanztheater Wuppertal presents a restaging of her work. This piece counts among her most uncompromising works, breaking with conventional dance aesthetics. An audacious experiment combining different genres, sometimes disturbing and at the same time moving, playing with various forms of love – tenderness and violence, pursuit and failure, hope and the abyss.
The music, by Béla Bartók, is not used as a coherent score but conducts the unique narrative with manic interruptions and repetitions.
The work has been carefully restaged for a new cast by the artists, who created the role of Bluebeard in 1977: Barbara Kaufmann, Beatrice Libonati, Héléna Pikon and Jan Minarik
