Firebird

 


FIREBIRD

Choreographer Tim Rushton’s award-winning ensemble has provided Firebird new wings with Stravinsky’s world-famous music.Rushton's adaptation of the piece is turning towards a contemporary context, placed in a graphic, cutting-edge universe with a scenery defined by pulsating and ever-changing video projections. Through music, movement and striking visuality it explores a doomed and ''enchanted'' world with chaos and order, exploitation and domination, victory and resurrection. An arena is created for the dancers, to be filled with turmoil, crafted physicality and savage beauty.
