“In her setting of Rite, she returns Stravinksy’s music to its most primitive logic by covering the stage in thick dark earth and by choreographing on a huge scale. Some 32 dancers confront each other in thudding convulsive groups, ranked across a sexual divide. As they unite in great wheeling circles then scatter into a collective frenzy of coupling, Bausch makes it appear as though they are galvanised by some savage, biological imperative. As they run and fall, dirt smears their sweaty bodies. By the time the chosen maiden (Ruth Amarante) is led towards her sacrificial solo, she seems to be only thing standing against her tribe and their absolute terror of extinction. Her dread and her ecstasy leave us shaking.”
