The Complaint of an Empress

Die Klage der Kaiserin

Directed by Pina Bausch
France, West Germany, 1990
Musical, Avant-Garde, Comedy


The first film by choreographer Pina Bausch, its general framework is set by the changing seasons: autumn, winter, and spring, while its inner structure reflects the method of working as developed with the Wuppertal Theatre of Dance during the 1973/1974 season. It consequently does not tell a story.
