Storyline

A making-of of Pina Bausch's ballet piece "Masurca Fogo" (1998), for the EXPO 98, from the first workshop in Lisbon until the avant premiere in Wuppertal, Pina Bausch's city, all moments dated on screen. The ballet master presides behind her work desk to the creation of steps by different dancers, as varied a mix as the African, Latin American, Fado and jazz music to which they swirl, representing the spirit of that world event. Not by chance, the camera shows prominently a photo-book on the gypsies close to Pina's ashtray. The ballet's premiere was in Germany, and the documentary's premiere was at the EXPO 98 in Lisbon. Written by Artemis-9
