In 1986, the city of Rome invited Pina Bausch and her company to make a piece inspired by the Eternal City. Viktor turned out to be the first of Bausch’s epic travelogues, a series which took her company around the world for inspiration-gathering residencies.
Deep in the muddy depths of a grave which is still being dug, acorpse couple are united in a macabre marriage and a woman is transformed into a water fountain. Viktor is set to music which spans centuries and continents: folk music from Italy, waltzes from Russia and dance music from the Middle Ages to the 1930s.
