Abstract/Description: Igor Stravinsky's musical composition "Le Sacre du Printemps" has created an almost irresistible lure for dance choreographers since it first premiered in 1913. Most view creating their own interpretation of the music as a kind of choreographic "rite" of passage, while some see it as a monumental challenge waiting to be met–others are simply commissioned to try their hand. Although it has been almost a century since "Le Sacre du Printemps" first premiered, it continues to provoke and interest modern dance choreographers and music composers. Of the nearly two hundred versions created, Pina Bausch's 1975 version for the Tanztheater Wuppertal has been often heralded for the intensity and striking interactions that Bausch created between her choreography and Stravinsky's score. Why is this? Through analysis of "Le Sacre du Printemps"' score, its recorded music, and video documentation of the Tanztheater Wuppertal performing the piece, this project has attemped to delve into the ways that Bausch choreographically interpreted Stravinsky's music.
