Rite of Spring Centennial

Film and live dance performance by the Flying Lions Dance Company

225th Anniversary Celebration

Wednesday, February 27, 2013
7:30 p.m.

Join us for film excerpts of dance versions of “The Rite of Spring,” including choreographies by Vaslav Nijinsky, Pina Bausch and Maurice Bejart, followed by a dance performance by the Flying Lions Dance Company under the direction of Ting-Yu Chen, who created a new choreography of the Rite of Spring titled “Red Dress.” Set as a story within a story, “Red Dress” takes the audience into the backstage world of a dance company and its emotionally tortured dance leader.

Afterward, Lynn Brooks, director of Dance at Franklin & Marshall College, will lead a discussion.

This event is open to the public.

Free; no tickets required.
