Beautiful, vulnerable, combative, and vibrant.”

We cannot think of a more appropriate company to celebrate the centennial of Igor Stravinsky’s landmark work Le Sacre de Printemps than Compagnie Marie Chouinard, making a long-awaited return to White Bird.  Marie Chouinard has explored the poetics of the body in immediate and provocative ways, exemplified by bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS, the work that White Bird previously commissioned and presented.  Unlike most choreographic treatments, Chouinard has constructed her Rite around solos, seeking to awaken in strong, clear movement the intimate mystery of each dancer.
