For the first time in North America, one of China’s most prolific performers and choreographers, Yang Liping, well-known in China as the Peacock Princess, presents her incredible new work, Rite of Spring.
Created for 15 dancers, the Rite of Spring is set to the Igor Stravinsky score of the same name with additional original compositions inspired by traditional Tibetan music. Liping’s choreography breathes new life into Stravinsky’s epic masterwork, using ancient Tibetan and Chinese symbols and rituals to illustrate themes of incantation, sacrifice and reincarnation.
