A plunge into the collective energy of music and dance

In spring 2015 - in collaboration with musicologist Alain Franco - choreographer Daniel Linehan created his own interpretation of Stravinsky's masterpiece The Rite of Spring for 13 newly-graduated dancers from P.A.R.T.S. Alain Franco and Jean-Luc Plouvier (Ictus) accompany them live on piano. As a spectator, you take your place right next to the dancers and the musicians. Linehan replaces the individual sacrifice for the group with an exploration of the work’s musical structure. The dancers must find a way to keep moving to Stravinsky’s uncompromising score, despite its lack of stable patterns. The radical score seems to ask: ‘How can we find new strategies to cope with rapidly changing circumstances?’ A plunge into the collective energy of music and dance.
