The Rite of Spring & common ground[s]

February 9 - February 11

The Rite of Spring & common ground[s]

The late Pina Bausch’s seminal work The Rite of Spring, one of dance theatre’s most significant works, takes the stage at The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion this February! Co-produced by the incredible Pina Bausch Foundation, École des Sables, and Sadler’s Wells, The Rite of Spring examines the notion of unyielding ritual when the sacrifice of a “chosen one” changes the season from winter to spring. Created by Bausch in 1975, her unparalleled choreography will be given a thrilling new life by a specially assembled company of 34 dancers from 14 African countries. Rite is paired with the West Coast premiere of common ground[s], a tender work of dance created, performed, and inspired by two remarkable women—Germaine Acogny, founder of École des Sables and “the mother of contemporary African dance,” and dancer Malou Airaudo. Together, The Rite of Spring and common ground[s] will offer Angelenos an incredible experience of poetic dance!
