The Rite of Spring
Reimagined by Seeta Patel
co-produced by Spin Arts
Taking the South Indian classical dance form of Bharatanatyam with its intricate rhythmic footwork, expressive prowess, geometric and dynamic movements, award-winning choreographer Seeta Patel has reimagined the iconic Rite of Spring for an international cast of dancers.
Promising to be an exciting flirtation between East and West, this production looks beyond notions of the exotic and orientalist perceptions of Eastern classical arts in this exciting bridge between Western classical music and Indian classical dance.
