Dancing engenders time and contains the reality of life.

- Saburo Teshigawara

Two works by Stravinsky, both written for dance, come together: one caused a scandal at its first performance, the other marked the beginning of a new collaboration with George Balanchine. Agon has no scenario other than the score and translates into pure, abstract dance with a linear geometric quality that echoes the world’s title. In her version of The Rite of Spring, Pina Bausch urges the score’s rhythmic power to burst forth. On an earth‑covered stage, possessed by an intense energy, the dancers engage in a deeply‑moving ritual. Alongside these two masterpieces, Saburo Teshigawara has been commissioned to create a new work giving substance to a profound, organic and poetic language on Esa‑Pekka Salonen’s haunting Violin Concerto.
