What does it mean to sacrifice? A new look at Stravinsky's Sacrifice of Spring meets two other choreographies.
THE CAGE Jerome Robbins
URAUFFÜHRUNG Demis Volpi
LE SACRE DU PRINTEMPS Marcos Morau
approx. 2 hours, two intervals
For all from 12 upwards
The American Jerome Robbins, who along with George Balanchine was one of the most important neoclassical choreographers of the 20th century, has conceived a strange-seeming rite with his ballet “The Cage”: A matriarchal community of insect-like creatures to which the men fall prey. This disturbing but thoroughly entertaining story is told with crystal-clear, neoclassical vocabulary, modulated by stubbornness untypical of ballet. The Concerto in D for string orchestra by Igor Stravinsky provides the framework for a lively, humorous and surprisingly contemporary choreography.

The Spanish choreographer Marcos Morau is known for his theatrical productions with strong imagery. For his own company “La Veronal”, he and his interdisciplinary team create pieces that portray a self-contained world and alternative realities precisely and in detail. The influences from film and photography are particularly noticeable - a visual, absorbing aesthetic that burns itself in. For some years now, he has also been choreographing at the interface of dance, film and theatre for companies such as the Nederlands Dans Theater or the Norwegian company Carte Blanche. For the Ballett am Rhein, Marcos Morau will create a choreography to Igor Stravinsky's famous composition “Le sacre du printemps”.

Ballet director and chief choreographer Demis Volpi will choreograph a world premiere to complement the two pieces.
