SACRES is a piece about Le Sacre du Printemps: it deals with the myth of its premiere(s), with personal memories of the famous choreography of Vaslav Nijinsky (in the reconstruction of Millicent Hodson) and the acclaimed version of Pina Bausch.

It opens new, subjective perspectives on these choreographies and opportunities for new "Sacres" in dialogue with historical heritage. How do we encounter Le Sacre du Printemps today? What questions does this piece raise in our view and how can we use and continue the legacy of Nijinsky and Bausch with them? SACRES seeks to break the myth of the Sacre du Printemps by re-constructing and de-constructing traditional movement material and personal memories, instead creating a personal approach to the piece. It explores another contemporary perspective on Le Sacre du Printemps while keeping an eye on the two choreographic milestones of the piece: a historically mediated, codified "reminder" of the piece is drawn from autobiographical memories and experiences of various participants which will be integrated into SACRES as an audio track via recorded or newly recorded interviews. Also excerpts from the movement material of the historical choreographies are explored and related to each other. In this way, different interpretations of the piece are juxtaposed, the comparison of their own, a new variation of Le Sacre du Printemps allows.
