Presented with PUSH International Performing Arts Festival

A powerful and primal performance that blends dance, music, and storytelling!

In the trajectory of Marie Chouinard, The Rite of Spring occupies a special place. Choosing to revisit this powerful hymn to life, the choreographer creates her first work based on a musical score. Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring explores a New World in its own way and marks the entry of dance into modernity. Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun is poetry for the theatre, as Marie Chouinard reimagines this classic Debussy piece with a new score and her own powerful choreography. Marie Chouinard finds in this avant-garde work an original pulsation in resonance with her own gestures. Far from constraining the rhythm of his dance, the breath of this powerful score inspires it, accompanies it, and energizes it, both the echo and the musical counterpoint of an organic, vigorous, and exalted choreography.

Adult material and situations – may not be appropriate for all audiences.
