THE RITE OF SPRING

THE RITE OF SPRING

Igor Strawinskys Meisterwerk inspirierte viele Choreographen zu anspruchsvollen und berühmten Stücken der Tanzgeschichte mit verschiedenen choreographischen Deutungen. Andonis Foniadakis kreiert mit der herausragenenden Tänzerin Francesca Monti eine eigene Interpretation. Die revolutionäre Musik, der leidende Körper und die unaufhörliche universelle Bewegung sind seine Ausdrucksmittel. Initiation, Ritual und Opfer, der Mensch von Angesicht zu Angesicht, eine Feier des weiblichen Körpers, der an die Grenzen geht und allmählich aufgibt auf dem Weg zur Selbstaufopferung. Ursprünglich für das Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève in der Schweiz als choreographische Arbeit von einer Gruppe erstellt, hatte diese Solo-Performance im Februar 2008 im Kratiras Studio in Athen Premiere und ist eine Produktion der Apotosoma Dance Company. Das Stück wurde bereits bei Joyce SoHo New York, The Place London, Kalamata International Dance Festival Griechenland, Teatro Piccolo Milano Italy, Theater Bellevue Amsterdam, Theater Theseum Athen Griechenland CND Pantin Paris vorgestellt.

----------------------

Igor Stravinsky’s masterpiece, a challenging work in the history of modern dance, has seen many attempts of a choreographic interpretation. Andonis Foniadakis makes his own proposal, featuring Francesca Monti’s outstanding interpretation. His materials are the revolutionary music, the suffering body and the ceaseless universal movement as an expressive medium that stirs the senses and results in a “gut” experience. Initiation, ritual and sacrifice; “human” face to face with “divine”; a celebration of the female body in defiance of all limits. The body gradually surrenders on the path to self-sacrifice. Originally created for the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève in Switzerland as a choreographic work of a group, this version of a solo performance has premiered on February 2008 at Kratiras Studio in Athens Greece. Is a production of Apotosoma Dance Company. It has been presented at Joyce SoHo New York, The Place London, Kalamata International Dance Festival Greece, Teatro Piccolo Milano Italy, Theater Bellevue Amsterdam, Theater Theseum Athens Greece CND Pantin Paris in Studio presentation.
