She's one of the most significant choreographers of the 21st century, and now, Bausch’s early masterpiece is being revived by her company after an absence from their repertoire of over 25 years.

Wednesday 12 - Saturday 15 February.

On a stage covered with the crunch of autumnal leaves, a man compulsively plays and replays a tape recording of Béla Bartók’s short opera about Bluebeard and his relentlessly inquisitive wife, Judith.

In a new restaging led by Helena Pikon and Barbara Kaufmann, the original cast member Jan Minarik and Beatrice Libonati, the dancers return to this clashing world of men and women, taboos and transgressions.
