„RITE OF SPRING"

 

Russia prior to the carination - a redefining of political, social and cultural values.

Operators strike back, artists federate.

Djagilew founds the "Ballets Russes" und unites dancers, choreographers, composers, painters, stage and costume designers -

and generates works with an intensely expressionistic force.

Unusual movements of Fokin, Nijinski or Balanchine, paintings of Picasso and provocative rhythms of Strawinsky shock the audience,

push aside the illusory world of the 19th century.

 

"With the 'Sacre du Printemps' I wanted to portray the lucent rising nature, awaken to new life - the rising of the world."

(Igor Strawinsky, 1913)
