Le Sacre Du Printemps / Suite Baloise, 2014

Roxy Theater, Basel

Le Sacre du Printemps - Suite Baloise is the first part of 'Stravinsky's Lab' and proposes an extraordinary bridge between Igor Stravinsky's famous ballet composition and folk dances from the region of Basel.

A group of six dancers are occupied with the conception of the local folk dance scene which transforms and creates a translation into the here and now, applied on the orchestral composition by Igor Stravinsky. The choreography reminds and exhorts the viewer to easily forget the limelight of the contemporary living cultural roots of local dance. Le Sacre du Printemps - Suite Baloise presented the current spirit of the time, combined with history. Energetic images and lovingly detailed kinetic sculptures matching with the sounds of the orchestra.

The project is under the direction of Kiriakos Hadjiioannou for the completion of the 100-year celebrations of Le Sacre du printemps. The Basel Edition.
