Xavier Le Roy: "Le Sacre du printemps"

Performance at Tanzhaus Zürich in cooperation with zürich moves!

03.03.2014, 19:00


The international contemporary dance and performance festival zürich moves! will be held for the third time on March 1–8, 2014. In cooperation with the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, zürich moves! presents Xavier Le Roy’s classic piece of conceptual engagement with dance, choreography, and music: Le Sacre du printemps. A documentary about a rehearsal of the Berlin Philharmonic under Simon Rattle inspired the French choreographer and performer to ask: how does a conductor move?
Xavier Le Roy studied molecular biology at the University of Montpellier and has worked as a dancer and choreographer since 1991. Over the past 20 years French choreographer has decisively influenced contemporary dance: with conceptual austerity, a discursive, exploratory spirit and enigmatic wit Le Roy has altered our conception of dance.
