The Rite of Spring (2011) Scottish Ballet
Supported through the Scottish Government's Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund
With additional support from Gavin and Kate Gemmel
- Running time:45 minutes approximately
Intense and visceral, Christopher Hampson's vision of The Rite of Spring, created originally for Atlanta Ballet, is presented 100 years after the original production revolutionised the world of dance and music.
Set to Stravinsky's exhilaratingly infl uential score, Hampson uses three dancers – two men and a woman – to reinvent the now infamous story of remorseless human sacrifice with brutal physicality and primal energy in this challenging work that examines themes of violence, obedience and domination.
