The Rite of Spring (1913) is a break with academicism for two reasons: the Stravinsky score refuse the German symphonic system and is inspired by Slavic melodies. As for the choreography of Nijinsky, she gets her inspiration from the popular dances of Eastern Europe. Thoroughly modern, the whole piece was a scandal. More than a century later, the Compagnie Chute Libre gives a contemporary reading and opens the doors wide. On stage, the eight dancers form a mosaic of indomitable and enthusiastic men and women. This updated version of The Rite of Spring is carried by a round of whirling dancers, like a hip-hop battle or a rave party, our modern rites.
