Laurent Chétouane

Sacré Sacre du Printemps



ca. 90 min

The Berlin choreographer and director Laurent Chétouane is returning to HAU Hebbel am Ufer with his  reworking of “Le Sacre du Printemps” as part of the project “Tanz über Gräben”. Moving in the spellbinding musical realm between Stravinsky’s original and a new composition by Leo Schmidthals, the three-part evening with seven dancers proposes a new vision of living together with the stranger and his unrepresentability.

Koproduktion: Ruhrtriennale 2012, PACT Zollverein (Essen), Tanzquartier Wien, Theater Bremen, Rencontres chorégraphiques internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis (France), Kaaitheater (Brüssel), Kampnagel (Hamburg). Gefördert durch die Kulturstiftung des Bundes, den Regierenden Bürgermeister von Berlin – Senatskanzlei – Kulturelle Angelegenheiten und durch den Fonds Darstellende Künste e.V.. Mit freundlicher Unterstützung des Institut français und des französischen Ministeriums für Kultur und Kommunikation/ DGCA. Präsentiert im Kontext von House on Fire mit Unterstützung des Kulturprogramms der Europäischen Union.
