Rite of Spring

Just listening to a little Stravinsky on Here’s To You with Shelley Solmes (I was on the Atlantic feed so you can still catch it west of that zone) and I was reminded of my visit to London on the weekend. The whole Southbank Centre and Festival Hal is undergoing a huge renovation that is nearly complete. At least, it had better be – they re-open next month!

Among the offerings for the new season, digital artist Klaus Obermaier, conductor Marin Alsop and the London Philharmonic Orchestra create a 21st century realisation of Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring”. As the London Philharmonic Orchestra play Stravinsky’s driving, rhythmic score live, a single dancer, Julia Mach, performs on stage. Working with interactive designers from the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Obermaier creates a form of cyber choreography where performers and technology interact to create a completely new perception of the body.

The audience experience fascinating distorted visual effects by wearing 3-D glasses, as real-time movements combine with virtual spaces and the dancer’s body appears to deconstruct, morph, multiply and engulf the audience. Stravinsky’s powerful music dictates the choreography, as well as the subsequent 3D projections.

Philip Glass’ Prelude from Akhnaten and Edgard Varese’s urban masterpiece Arcana complete this evening of surprise and innovation.

Tickets to London, anyone?
