Gvanim BeMahol (Shades of Dance) opens tomorrow night, Wednesday, August 28th with an evening of contemporary ritual and ceremony in dance, celebrating the 100th anniversary of The Rite of Spring. The competition for promising young choreographers will open with a festive evening featuring Hillel Kogan‘s “Rite of Spring,” a theatrical dance performance with an intimate relationship to Stravinsky’s score, daring contemporary interpretations, fascinating and moving performance with wild sparks of humor. The evening’s second part will be a collective ceremony, with 11 dancers improvising to Stravinsky’s iconic composition, under the guidance of Gvanim artistic director Idit Herman.
Gvanim BeMahol competition performances will take place from August 29 – August 31, 2013 at the Suzanne Dellal Centre. Six choreographers will present their works in two programs, each work reflecting an individual response to creating a contemporary ritual or ceremony.
