If this is the one I'm thinking of, there's a tape of the whole piece in the NYPL dance collection. Old, black and white stuff from when Bausch was a student of Jooss at the Folkwang Schule. Despite the image quality, it is indeed a fabulous tape.
By the way, there's a brief clip of young Pina Bausch as the grieving Mother in the Green Table that is NOT TO BE BELIEVED, she will take your breath away, somewhere in htat Dance of hte Century series -- it's worth combing through to find it, one of hte greatest performances of anything I've ever seen -- just a few seconds really, but visionary........ and it makes you understand a GREAT deal about Pina Bausch......
I just wish someone would do it live, so we could see it and stop thinking for a minute about videotape!

Well, if you can point out one legitimate offspring of either Balanchine or Tudor, you might have an equivalent situation there....
shouldn't someone be shooting Markard setting Jooss works, the way the Balanchine Foundation has been doing for his work. Speaking of which, why isn't the Tudor estate doing the same?

(By the way, I'm not saying the tapes would need to be released -- presumably that would be Markard's control -- just that they should be made while it's still possible).

Unfortunately it won't include "The Green Table", but there will be "Pavane for a dead infant", and "The Great City", performed by the Ballet du Rhin in Mulhouse (staged by Anna Markard) and "A ball in old Vienna" filmed in 1935.
