Vollmond (Full Moon) is a marvelous legacy created by the illustrious German choreographer Pina Bausch three years before her death in 2009. An icon who was a pioneer of dance theatre, in this piece she revisits the unending theme of male-female relations, from the desire for love to solitude, from laughter to tears, benumbed apathy to startling vitality. Her 12 dancers-actors bare their souls without reservation in poignant, breathtaking and amazing solos that they perform downstage while their sensual or playful games of seduction and theatrical scenes unfold in a sublime lakeside landscape décor where the dancers slide, swim, fight and frolic under an intermittent rain that falls as a fine drizzle or in torrents. Like a pagan ritual whose powerful images leave a strong impression.
