In a historic triple-bill programme, HK Ballet teams up with the HK Phil for an exhilarating evening celebrating 21st Century drive and innovation and bringing together a unique cadre of international talent.
The new work of The Royal Ballet’s Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor, Afterite, is a reconceptualisation of Igor Stravinsky’s iconic and notorious The Rite of Spring, the score of which still excites and stimulates audiences today with its amazing raw and primal rhythms. A ballet born of revolution, The Rite of Spring created a riot in the theatre when it first débuted in 1913, and firebrand McGregor boldly tackles this piece with his signature visceral movement and contemporary sensibility.
Nominated for the Prix Benois de la Danse in 2013, The Year of the Rabbit is Justin Peck’s joyful and imaginative work set to a live orchestral adaptation of Sufjan Stevens’s Chinese astrology-inspired electronic score. At only 30 years old, Peck is the toast of the ballet world as a choreographic master and is only the second person in history to hold the title of New York City Ballet Resident Choreographer.
This remarkable evening will be rounded out with a third exciting piece.
