Created in the 1973/74 season, Fritz was Pina Bausch’s first piece with Tanztheater Wuppertal. It was performed a total of 16 times in the 1973/74 season. At its premiere on the 5th of January 1974, the piece was part of a triple bill together with Rodeo by Agnes de Mille and Kurt Jooss’s Der Grüne Tisch.
The release of the two videos of Fritz is dedicated to Hermann Markard (30 July 1926 - 5 November 2021).
