Sacrer – where street dance takes over the iconic Rite of Spring, revamping the music and celebrating it in the atmosphere of a cypher.
Katya Montaignac serves as the catalyst for a rich collaboration, working with the dancers to create a rejuvenated realm for this classic piece. Street dance and Stravinsky’s score have something in common. Both are surprising and uncompromising. Drawing from their lives and sharing personal experiences with the audience in this intimate work, the performers use their own vernacular to ask compelling questions. What do we do together? What do we view as “sacred”? The audience surrounds the performance space as an arena takes shape and an ad hoc community embarks on an adventurous ritual.
