Film and live dance performance by the Flying Lions Dance Company
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
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.
