" The Rite of Spring set in our time, at last..."
“Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring is a timeless dance masterpiece, so powerful it was revisited by great choreographers such as Pina Bausch, Maurice Béjart or Angelin Preljocaj. Originally choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky, this blank canvas where humans engage in dancing in a large pagan sacred ceremony questions the future according to their rites. With In Bloom, choreographers Pierre Bolo and Annabelle Loiseau bring a new color to this monumental piece by creating an original hip-hop version, both contemporary and intuitive, resolutely urban.
On stage, a totem pole and ten dancers form a mosaic of untamed men and women exultant in the boldness of their energy and to the richness and sensitivity of their vocabulary. The bodies twirl, like a as in a hip-hop battle or a rave party, as if to shield themselves from the economic and social realities that surround them, so that they can grow into something different. A flowering that bears the seal of Nirvana and their song In Bloom, the sacrifice of a youth which is both disappointed and full of hope. A piece that exudes an open, full-blown and emancipated youth, carried by a ring of teenagers whose earthy dance on the ground seeks to fly.”
