Le sacre du printemps
"Dancing the Rite remains one of the extraordinary moments of my career as an interpreter. The desire to make these dancers feel in my company was stronger than the fear of showing the audience a new version, after those of Nijinski, Mary Wigman, Béjart, Pina Bauch, Mats Ek ... Let the music go and just soak up those rhythms that echo the impulses of life, its passages, its rites, its 'little deaths'."
