I spoke to Germaine Acogny, founder of École des Sables, and Suzanne Walker, Executive Producer of Sadler’s Wells, about their last-minute film production of Pina Bausch’s The Rite of Spring. They filmed it after the sun went down on the beach in Senegal, on the last night before lockdown. It’s an incredible film, and it was a pleasure to write this.
