Pina Jackson in Mercemoriam


2009

A choreographic comedy

Since, within one month, three Greats of Dance died and since this dismal fate brought them  together, I decided to evoke altogether the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, the Queen of Tanztheater, Pina Bausch, and the Emperor of Dance Revolution, Merce Cunningham, in a triple  « humoriscritic » and vivifying tribute.
