Fabulous Beast | Rite

Michael Keegan-Dolan's Rite of Spring is dark, confronting and intensely, unexpectedly memorable. There are moments when this physically disparate group of dancers - tall, short, slender, muscular, black, white - are so clearly attuned and intimate with the marriage between his choreography and Stravinsky's complex, polyrhythmic patterns that they seem to become music incarnate.
