Live Artery: A Rite

Presenters RSVP here

New York Live Arts Theater

For its thirtieth anniversary, the Company will create a major new dance-theater work bringing together two leading American directors and their companies. A Rite is an intriguing and powerful collaboration between artists Bill T. Jones and Anne Bogart and their respective companies – Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company. Coinciding with the one-hundredth anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, Jones and Bogart combine forces to explore the impact of this revolutionary piece of music, imagining the consequence of hearing the score played for the very first time.

A Rite will have its world premiere January 25, 2013 at Carolina Performing Arts.

A Rite was commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
