Le Sacre du Printemps des Rues
A street theatre by François Chat, Dancer- Juggler
4 October, 6.30pm @ Bharat Bhavan
Alliance Française de Trivandrum in association with Bharat Bhavan is organising a street theatre by Dancer- Juggler François Chat,: Le Sacre du Printemps des Rues (on 4 October, 6.30pm @ Bharat Bhavan.
Le Sacre du Printemps des Rues is an answer to the famous ballet Le Sacre Printemps (the Rite of Spring) by Stravinsky. Here, Stravinsky will be sampled, the rite will be sacrificed, sounds of the street and of everyday life will disturb the partition to dramatize and modernise it so that it can be heard anew. It is created with a rhythmic structure of the work, but with pressurised relations in the temporality of movement, both in harmony and contrast. Leaving the narration to the libretto in the partition to let Stravinsky unsatisfied once again, leaving the spectators to be ancestors, the balls be young girls, the juggler the sacrificed. Seated spectators encircling the game will form the circle of spring.
Francois Chat brings juggling to dance, borrowing certain movements from other choreographies of the rite, in the blink of an eye, but also highlighting the journey through time to a rite that is touched by the new spring.
Francois Chat is an actor dancer-juggler, director. Mixing dance and juggling, since the creation of Clip-Clop in 1993 and L’oeuf du vent in 1996, to the most recent shows like Le Sacre du Printemps des rues in 2009, Francois Chat is both a remarkable juggler and a motion theatre artist.
