the LAST rite of spring

Konsept ve Performans: Ufuk SENEL

Besteci: Igor Stravinsky 'The Rite of Spring'

Yorumlayan: David Bernard ''Park Avenue Chamber Symphony'

“To the one who takes one from one’s self and never gives it back…”

This solo that was shaped based on Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” focuses on the notion of “sacrificing something in return for something”. In this sense, instead of looking at the issue of sacrifice, which dates back to the paganistic times, from a submissive perspective, it approaches the rite of spring from a rebellious, furious and sensual standpoint and gives it a new flair. For the artist, this piece is a rite for the new period that will begin after the old one ends with the arrival of autumn, instead of being a celebration for the arrival of spring.
