Rite of Spring

Choreography: Martin Forsberg

A playground lost in (dys)function, (dis)order and earplugs. A leftover tarp and a rake without a handle, and a bunch of other everyday objects share space with the three dancers trying to execute a very accurate version of The Rite of Spring. Norrdans’ Artistic Director Martin Forsberg creates a macrocosm in a small space, where scales, volume and vibrations take centre stage. The beautiful finds its place next to the sublime, and the captivating next to the distorted. The dance comes dangerously close and the grand notes of The Rite of Spring by composer Igor Stravinsky manifest themselves in a small but explosive ensemble, a form of rebellious playfulness and total lack of sacrifice.
