Production Details / Press Releases

The Berlin choreographer and director Laurent Chétouane is returning to HAU Hebbel am Ufer with his reworking of “Le Sacre du Printemps” as part of the project “Tanz über Gräben”. Moving in the spellbinding musical realm between Stravinsky’s original and a new composition by Leo Schmidthals, the three-part evening with seven dancers proposes a new vision of living together with the stranger and his unrepresentability.
