PATETIČNA / PATHETIQUE
POSVEĆENJE PROLJEĆA / LE SACRE DU PRINTEMPS
Douglas Lee is a British choreographer who builds his authorship on neoclassical dance aesthetics. With the choreography of Pathétique, he will present himself to the Rijeka Ballet ensemble and the Rijeka audience for the first time. He draws inspiration from a strict tradition and a classical view of the musical form of Beethoven’s sonata op. 13 in C minor, better known as the Pathétique Sonata, while building the dramaturgy of his new ballet on the “Beethoven-esque” motif of defying fate.
Living world is unique and spectacular miracle. For this very reason, our „The Rite of Spring“/„Le Sacre du printemps“, celebrates life and gives recognition to life on Earth, creating s positive and peaceful attitude, spreading positive energy and pleasure. Milions of species of plants and animals shine in diversity and abundance, living lifes connecting such way that they support and maintain each other. With this project we fully rely on that finely tuned machine that supports life. We don’t aspire to intellectual and philosophical, but to the natural and positive attitude that we need most in these present times full of challenge.
