Phoenix Dance: Rite of Spring & Left Unseen

Phoenix Dance Rite of Spring & Left Unseen

New for 2019, Phoenix Dance Theatre present a culturally distinctive 21st century re-working of the iconic ballet, The Rite of Spring. For his first work created in the UK, Haitan choreographer, dancer and educator Jeanguy SAINTUS re-envisions The Rite of Spring introducing the sacred arts of Haiti along with contemporary global issues in his bold approach to the near riot-causing original by Vaslav Nijinsky.

Left Unseen explores inclusion and isolation and how we rely on our five senses to find our place and navigate the world. In isolation there is often stillness and silence and also unpredictable disturbance and chaos. The eight dancers embody these different state creating an aesthetically beautiful and emotive piece of dance.

The work is set to a mixture of tracks by Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto and Hildur Gudnadottir which compliment Lebrun’s choreography creating both a sense of drama and vulnerability.
