Phoenix Dance Theatre
May 4th 7:45 pm
Featuring The Rite of Spring and Left Unseen
Phoenix Dance Theatre present a culturally distinctive 21st century re-working of the iconic ballet, The Rite of Spring. For his first work created in the UK, Haitan contemporary and folklore choreographer Jeanguy Saintus reenvisions The Rite of Spring introducing the sacred arts of Haiti along with contemporary global issues in his bold approach to the near riot-causing original by Vaslav Nijinsky.
Alongside Rite of Spring will be a new work from established choreographer Amaury Lebrun. Left Unseen explores inclusion and isolation and our instinctive reliance on the five senses. Using precise choreography, moments of unison, interaction, sporadic bursts of movement and sudden stillness Lebrun poses the question, how sensitive and aware can we become when we lose one of our senses…?
