Seeta Patel - Rite Of Spring

Mon 13 May

Seeta Patel - Rite Of Spring

This event has passed

Taking the South Indian classical dance form of Bharatanatyam with it’s intricate rhythmic footwork, geometric and dynamic movements and expressive prowess, Seeta has created a compelling excerpt of the iconic Rite of Spring with a view to creating a full length work with 12 dancers.

This will be the first time this iconic piece of music has been interpreted in this way, and an exciting bridge between two very technical, powerful and evocative art forms (Western classical music and Indian classical dance).

Primary Sponsor the Bagri Foundation, co-commissioned by Sadler’s Wells, The Place, Birmingham Hippodrome, Curve, The Lowry, Pavilion Dance South West, Dance4 and Akademi as part of their 40th anniversary. Supported by Arts Council England, British Council, Dance City, Kala Sangam, and Yorkshire Dance.
