Firebird/Kridt - Contemporary dance in Fürth, Germany

FIREBIRD & KRIDT by Tim Rushton 


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.


 

KRIDT
While hearing the sound of someone scratching writings on a wall, a man lies on the floor preparing himself to meet his fate. Eyes meet. The body’s memory takes over the story. Tim Rushton had two sources of inspiration creating Kridt. Firstly, a text from the Bible as the thematic pivotal point: ‘To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven’ (Ecclesiastes, 3,1.) Secondly, Musica Adventus, the suite for strings by Latvian composer Peteris Vasks. The music takes its starting point in the epistle on the Christmas message – Peace on Earth.
