Elder Rites

Comments ()
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

This week sees the culmination of an adventurous three-week process led by the French choreographer Thierry Thieû Niang. A co-presentation of MIFA Victory Theatre and Vermont Performance Lab, du Printemps reimagines the once-scandalous Rite of Spring, collaboratively choreographed and performed by an ensemble of 24 dancers from the Valley and southern Vermont. And there’s one more twist: the performers are all senior citizens, aged 60-100, subverting the work’s youthful aura to challenge assumptions about vitality, sexuality and aging.

May 27, 7 p.m., Serkin Center, Marlboro College, Marlboro, Vt.; May 30, The Hub @ Gateway City Arts, 92-114 Race St., Holyoke. Tickets by reservation and contribution ($10 suggested), (800) 224-6432.
