This is a short selection of scenes from a scratch performance resulting from a two-week research and development period. The Faun (working title) deals with the context surrounding the creation and premiere of The Rite of Spring in 1913. Composer Igor Stravinsky had created a ground-breaking score for the Ballets Russes. Company director Sergei Diaghilev gave his protégé Vaslav Nijinsky the difficult task of choreographing the ballet. In a world on the brink of radical change, social upheaval and war, for some the ballet was a revelation, while for others it was a personal affront. The Faun explores the complexities of creation, sacrifice and collaboration.
