About the performances
24 Preludes by Chopin is a choreographic work constructed of dynamic alternations that are constantly in touch with the music and the feelings it evokes- chastity, passion, introspection, ardour, or rebellion. They are transposed by Marie Chouinard into states of agitation and practiced movement, a vast terrain of forbidden games sculpted by light.
The Rite of Spring occupies a special position in Marie Chouinard's work. She created her first choreography based on Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, exploring a New World, and marking the entry of dance into modernity.
Choreographer: Marie Chouinard
