Le sacre du printemps
April 15 – 16, 2023
Running time 50’ For the April 16 show, there will be a tactile visit dedicated to the stage elements of Le sacre du printemps (at 2.15 pm, running time: 45'). The visit – open to all – is designed for people with visual impairments. To book: firstname.lastname@example.org
In every metamorphosis of the human being, death is always by the side of life. Merging dance and performing arts, Dewey Dell's choreographic research is inspired by images from art history and the behaviors of the animal kingdom. Composed of Teodora Castellucci, Agata Castellucci, Vito Matera and Demetrio Castellucci, the company encounters Igor Stravinskij's Le sacre du printemps, a milestone of musical literature and endless visual source. The mystery of spring and the violent coming of life take place on stage, in a conflict between sound and vision, between the powerful seduction of music and the furious energy of bodies. An astonishing new work by one of the most original companies on the contemporary scene.
