Stravinsky Evening

  • 2010/2011 Season
  • Dance Theatron No. 19


This will be a production of The Rite of Spring, which was performed by Hirayama Motoko for its NNTT premiere in November 2008. This piece for one male and one female dancer features dance that can reach a frenetic pace. The music is Stravinsky's Rite of Spring for four hands, which will be performed by two renowned pianists. The last scene builds gradually to a maelstrom that can blow the audience out of their seats. For her direction, choreography and thrilling performance of the piece, Hirayama Motoko earned a New Artist Award in the 59th Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Awards for Art. In this upcoming program, audiences can look forward to seeing her take on a new work, The Soldier's Tale.
