Le Sacre du Printemps


Dancer and choreographer Xavier Le Roy memorized Simon Rattle’s gestures as the latter was conducting The Rite of Spring in Berlin. He reproduces those movements here for the audience. This illusionist’s act invites spectators to share an inner experience of the mobility of sound and the musicality of gestures. Can musical performances also be dances, in which the visual component naturally conditions what you hear and feel?
