»Sacre« is a production of Sasha Waltz & Guests co-produced by Mariinsky Theater, St. Petersburg and Théâtre Royal de La Monnaie, Brussels. Made in Radialsystem ®
Sasha Waltz & Guests is supported by Hauptstadtkulturfonds and Land Berlin.

Considered one of the key works of modernism, it is a hundred years after the genesis of Igor Stravinsky’s »Le Sacre du Printemps« that Sasha Waltz takes on the Mariinsky Theatre’s offer to engage with this extraordinary piece of musical and dance history. Its title translates to »The Rite of Spring«. The strikingly archaic, tension-charged and angular composition is characterised by a strongly emphasised rhythm, precipitous drops and a layering of constantly repeating musical motives. Its many almost noise-like dissonances and expressionist sonic feel have made the work one of the most famous pieces of music of the modern avant-garde.
