艾甘·汉舞蹈团《思想伊戈:百年春之祭》-第42届香港艺术节

At its Paris premiere one hundred years ago, Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring famously sparked riots in the theatre. It shattered conventions about what was "acceptable" music and dance. Commissioned as a contemporary response to that iconoclastic milestone, Akram Khan's iTMOi exhibits equivalent whirlwind energy and vibrancy.

This is no attempt to replicate something unique. Only traces of the original are present, with occasional echoes in the music of composers Nitin Sawhney, Jocelyn Pook and Ben Frost. Inspired by Stravinsky and influenced by dervish whirling, flamenco, butoh and kathak, Akram, a major star in today's dance world, has created something unexpected and entirely new.

ITMOi is performed by his eleven-strong international company from a wide range of dance backgrounds. Like Rite, this is a ground-breaking work for a new century.
