Hard sounds and pagan excitement, more than 100 years ago, Le Sacre du Printemps caused a real scandal. The day after the premiere, the newspapers wrote “Ce n'est pas le sacre du printemps, mais le massacre du tympan”. It was not so much Igor Stravinsky's music that caused the tumult, but Nijinsky's choreography, which was fiercer and wilder than what had ever happened. Pianist André de Groote turned this ballet and orchestral work into a version for four grand pianos. This is now supplemented with the original percussion parts. La Verità Dance Company with the collaboration of Mechelen Conservatorium, are making a choreography on the rousing rhythms and budding musical spring scenes from this masterpiece. Choreography / Direction:  Alex Kyriakoulis / Natasa Frantzi Performers: Anais Van Eycken, Giada Castioni, Kevin Franc, Jenneke Slaets, Stavros Apostolatos, Natasa Frantzi Conductor: Tom Van Den Eynde Music: Igor Strawinsky, Vladimir Martinov & Graham Fitkin Pianists: Alexandros Sarakenidis, Carla Van Effeltaire, Peggy Jordens, Connie Van den Bergh Percussionists: Nik Goovaerts & Joris Thys With the support: Conservatorium Mechelen (BE) De Vrienden van het Conservatorium Mechelen vzw (BE)
