The movie follows the experience of Pina Bausch in the eternal city to which she dedicated two unforgettable shows, Viktor (1986) and O Dido (1999). Through an interwoven series of treasured interviews – spanning from Matteo Garrone to Mario Martone, from Vladimir Luxuria to Ninni Romeo, from Leonetta Bentivoglio to Andrés Neumann, from Maurizio Millenotti to Claudia Di Giacomo and culminating with the gypsy family Firlović – a portrait of the surprising city of Rome emerges as interpreted by Pina Bausch: a city both authentic and anti-conventional. A Rome that is quotidian, scanned by lunches in trattorias, filled with incursions to traditional ballrooms and walks to the city farmers’ market; and a Rome that is underground, spread out to its multiethnic city limits, explored by many visits to the gypsy camps and nocturnal excursions to transgender clubs and the LGBTQ cultural circle.

Graziano Graziani is a theatre critic, writer and journalist. He’s a cohost of Fahrenheit on Radio 3 Rai and he has written for numerous papers (favorite credits are Lo Straniero, Internazionale.it, the blog of Minimum Fax minima&moralia and the new Treccani webzine, il Tascabile). He collaborates with Rai 5 for which he created many documentaries on contemporary theatre. He has published various books, last of which was Atlante delle Micronazioni (2015) by Quodlibet editor. He curates a blog named Stati d’eccezione.
