Phoenix Dance Theatre: The Rite of Spring and Left Unseen

Phoenix Dance Theatre: The Rite of Spring and Left Unseen
Phoenix Dance Theatre returns to Cast with The Rite of Spring introducing the sacred arts of Haiti along with contemporary global issues, as well as  Left Unseen, a new piece exploring inclusion and isolation and our reliance on the five senses.

For his first work created in the UK, Haitian choreographer Jeanguy Saintus re-envisions The Rite of Spring introducing the sacred arts of Haiti along with contemporary global issues in his bold approach to the near riot-causing original by Vaslav Nijinsky. 

 Left Unseen explores inclusion and isolation and our instinctive reliance on the five senses. Using precise choreography, moments of unison, interaction, sporadic bursts of movement and sudden stillness Lebrun poses the question, how sensitive and aware can we become when we lose one of our senses…?

*Please note that this performance was published in our Spring 2019 brochure as 'The Rite of Spring and Troy Game'.  As a northern front runner in contemporary dance, Phoenix Dance Theatre has a reputation for commissioning original works created by the very best choreographers from across the globe. They were recently presented with an exciting opportunity to support the work of established choreographer Amaury Lebrun. With this in mind, Phoenix have taken the artistic decision to change the piece that accompanies their title production in their 2019 double bill. They cannot wait to share the incredible work that Amaury has created with audiences throughout the country.
