Athens Biennale 3
Performance of the YELP Danceco. company for the 3rd Athens Biennale 2011 MONODROME.
"Exactly what I wanted" was Sergei Diaghilev’s (director of Ballet Russes) statement after the premiere of the ballet "Le Sacre du Printemps", choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky, with music composed by Igor Stravinsky, in 1913 in Paris. "Le Sacre du Printemps" was Nijinsky’s only second choreography after "L'apres-midi d'un Faune", yet its premiere ended in one of the most famous audience riots and changed ballet’s history.
YELP Danceco.'s presentations for the 3rd Athens Biennale MONODROME focus on the subject of sacrifice, while drawing also from Nijinsky's work.
