19:00 Rite of Spring
Ballet in one act to music by Igor Stravinsky and Xuntian He. 70 min. Director/Choreographer: Yang Li Ping. Visual Director: Tim Yip. Literature Director: Gelou Liang. Lighting Design: Fabiana Piccioli. World premiere took place on 19 October 2018 as a part of Shanghai International Arts Festival. Yang Liping’s Rite of Spring reflects her artistic ambition to refine her artistic “voice” further by offering her interpretation of one of the most revered musical scores for dance in the 20th century. It will be a full length production. The work will be constructed in three sections with the second section using the original Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky. The first and last section will use a specially created new score, inspired by traditional music from Tibet. What sets Yang’s version apart is that it will be influenced by Tibetan and Chinese symbols of nature as well as beliefs in the cyclicity of life and death, of duty — and the inevitability of rebirth. It is not Yang’s intentions to create a real materialistic world but to find an abstraction of a physical universe where time, space and life co-exist in the transient sense of a cycle.
