SACRES is a solo dance piece for a man about his encounter with Le Sacre du Printemps: with the myth of its premiere(s), memories of the famous choreographies of Vaslav Nijinsky (in the reconstruction by Millicent Hodson) and the celebrated version of Pina Bausch. Which questions does Sacre ask out of our perspective and how can they be used to benefit from the heritage of Nijinsky and Bausch in order to carry it on?

With the help of re-construction and de-construction of movement material, the iconic piece is demystified. At the same time a new perspective on Le Sacre du Printemps is created out of an emotional and very personal examination of the piece. The confrontation with copyrights is posing very basic questions, however: What actually defines Le Sacre du Printemps? When is Sacre really Sacre? What is allowed to be shown, danced, or played? SACRES is operating at the limits of these restrictions, outraged, driven, angry, beaten.
