Le Sacre du Printemps,a ballet for a single body 2013/14

I can feel it – gonna take you down. 
Black Sabbath, When Death Calls

101 years ago Stravinsky composed and Nijinsky choreographed Le Sacre du Printemps, a ballet that broke all conventions at that time. The oeuvre is divided into two parts; The Adoration of the Earth and The Sacrifice. The first part is all about the society and therefore I have chosen the form of a solo as an oppositional element that is able to interrogate and play with the individual representation and imaginary energy of the group. The singular body is representing the whole ensemble of the original ballet by asking – How many bodies can the singular body be or represent?

I am the core of the ballet. I am the dance, the ensemble, the old wise man, the witch, the peacock and the bear. I am the only one dancing the rite of spring. The second part The sacrifice introduces a further working element, namely the Heavy Metal culture. Common aspects of Heavy Metal and Le Sacre du Printemps are a ritualistic structure as well as an archaic energy and gestural movement vocabulary. The Sacrifice is constructed as a solo that negotiates the body within the sacrificing dance, a body that comes to a point of exhaustion, a no more, game over!
