Étienne Béchard, formerly of the prestigious Béjart Ballet Lausanne, takes on the Rite of Spring, described by Stravinksy as a “great pagan ritual” echoing the awakening of the forces of nature. Through its unique rhythm, this seminal work of incomparable telluric richness propelled music and dance into the modern age. This feast of sounds and colours is a real breath of fresh air!
