In this third and last episode, Alain Platel explains how Gerard Mortier persuades him to resume his choreographic career with the creation of the controversial theatre work Wolfe based on Mozart for the Ruhrtriennale. This work is followed by the equally grand vsprs and pitié! with music by Fabrizio Cassol, and Out of Context - for Pina named production of the year by Ballet-Tanz. Alain tells us what moved him to add the words “for Pina” to the title. The interview ends with personal thoughts on influence and posterity.
