Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Presents: A Rite
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts presents Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company: A Rite. Two of the most celebrated voices in American contemporary performance, Bill T. Jones and Anne Bogart, join forces for A Rite, a major new dance-theater work that celebrates the 100th anniversary of The Rite of Spring: Igor Stravinsky's groundbreaking masterpiece and celebrated collaboration with choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky that was so revolutionary it incited a riot upon its Paris premiere in 1913. A Rite imagines what it must have been like to hear The Rite of Spring played for the very first time. $35 in advance, $40 at the door.
