This is the centennial of Igor Stravinsky’s iconic The Rite of Spring, and our friend Jürg Koch, an assistant professor at the University of Washington Dance Program, choreographed a piece to commemorate. In addition to creating a chilling and often dark piece, Koch used an interesting combination of professional dancers, students and community performers, all of whom were great in the Jan. 18-19 performances at Meany Hall. This video was done by myself and my wife, Florangela Davila, to help market the performance.
