Seeta Patel – The Rite of Spring
November 12, 2021 to November 12, 2021
Award winning Choreographer, Seeta Patel reimagines this iconic ballet in the powerful classical Indian dance style Bharatanatyam. Igor Stravinsky’s avantgarde score stunned Paris audiences when it debuted in 1913 and has been hugely influential ever since.
Discover a transformative retelling of this pagan folk story through intricate rhythmic footwork, expressive prowess, geometric and dynamic movements, delivered by world-class performers.
Set to be one of the most exciting flirtations between East and West in current times, the production looks beyond notions of the exotic and orientalist perceptions of Eastern classical arts.
The evening will showcase some of the finest Indian classical dance talent across the globe in an exciting bridge between two very technical, powerful and evocative art forms (Western classical music and Indian classical dance).
