The Rite of Spring

Autumn 2022

A dysfunctional birthday party, a place of sacrifice, the smells of spring, chopped onion mixed with mud and air guitar solos.

A classic and a colossus! Epic and chaotic this masterpiece of music history is now sweeping the schools of Västernorrland. Rhythm and clang manifesting through a small and explosive ensemble. Choreographed by Norrdans’ Artistic Director Martin Forsberg, the Rite of Spring creates a macro cosmos within a tiny space. A cycle of death and re-birth in the middle of the classroom. Here, the beautiful and the sublime, the magical and grotesque, exist side by side. And the dance comes almost dangerously close.

The Rite of Spring was performed for the very first time in 1913 at Théâtre des Champs Élysées in Paris, then by the Russian Ballet. Its reception was so tumultuous that the police was called to the scene. Through the years, the Rite of Spring has been produced in a number of different interpretations.
