Dance piece by Marie Chouinard
As a choreographer she has won numerous awards and is in demand internationally. Chouinard's avant-garde choreography for Stravinsky’s ground-breaking music is regarded as being her masterpiece. The choreography is constructed around solos – organic, vigourous and vivid.
"There is no story in my Rite", she explains, "no development, no cause and effect. Only synchronicity. It is as if I were dealing with the very moment after the instant life first appeared. The performance is the unfolding of that moment. I have the feeling that before that moment there was an extraordinary burst of light, a flash of lightning." – Marie Chouinard
