Compagnie Marie Chouinard

HEATHER WISNER
8 pm Thursday-Saturday, Jan. 31-Feb. 2., Saturday February 02 | $20-$30.
 
Stravinsky’s primal score Le Sacre du Printemps (“The Rite of Spring”) has been an irresistible challenge to choreographers ever since Nijinksy and the Ballets Russes set it in motion a century ago. Since then, we have seen everything from Angelin Preljocaj’s sexualized scrimmage on Astroturf to Pina Bausch’s wonderfully gritty vision (not to mention Christopher Stowell’s recent rendition at Oregon Ballet Theatre). Montreal-based contemporary choreographer Marie Chouinard approaches the pagan spectacle with less narrative emphasis than some, but with plenty of vigor, building her version around solos for her 10-member company. It’s paired here with her “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun,” based on both the iconic Nijinsky creation and Adolph de Meyer’s photographs of Nijinsky’s performance. Few women have danced the role other than Nijinsky’s sister and Chouinard herself; here, two of the company’s women will alternate in the role. In either case, expect to see fresh takes on two classic works, even as they offer echoes of their predecessors.
