From China’s superstar choreographer and dancer Yang Liping comes Rite of Spring, a new interpretation of Stravinsky’s revolutionary ballet of sacrifice and renewal, and arguably the most influential piece of music of the 20th century.

A household name in her native country, Yang Liping has won huge international acclaim for her extravagant, breathtakingly visual dance works, blending Chinese aesthetics and modern expression in a distinctively personal movement language.

Taking inspiration from Chinese and Tibetan symbols of nature, Yang Liping creates a preface and a coda framing Stravinsky’s totemic work as the second of three sections – Incantation, Sacrifice and Renewal. Parts I and III feature a new musical score from Chinese composer He Xuntian, influenced by traditional Tibetan music.

In this radical Rite, the Chosen One willingly gives herself for the good of the community, journeying from terror and doubt to knowledge, empowerment and reincarnation.

Tickets from $47 + BF available here.
