Performing Arts: Sacre du Printemps/Rites of Spring centerary - screenings and panel discussion

On occasion of the centenary of the first production of Stravinsky’s Sacre du Printemps and in cooperationwith the Goethe Institut Glasgow, Anselm Heinrich brought together and chaired a panel discussion on Sacre du Printemps in its current and historical interpretations and issues around originality, adaptation and translation at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow on 23 October 2013.


The event included a screening of a reconstruction of the original choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky (by Hodson/Archer) and of Sasha Waltz’s recent 2013 production, which was just at that time receiving its German premiere in Berlin to significant critical acclaim. Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director, Christopher Hampson, was also invited to talk about his own choreography of the piece, which was premiering in Glasgow that autumn.

The panel consisted of Dr Lucy Weir (History of Art, Glasgow University), Christopher Hampson (Artistic Director Scottish Ballet), Jay Capperauld (composer), Richard Honner (Resident Conductor Scottish Ballet), Paul Tyers (Artistic Director BA in Modern Ballet, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Scottish Ballet), and Dr Anselm Heinrich.

The event was attended by about 100 people, and generously funded by the GoetheInstitut Glasgow.
