During her Creative Summer week, Seeta Patel will be starting work on re-staging the iconic Rite of Spring with a cast of international Bharatanatyam dancers. Taking the South Indian classical dance form of Bharatanatyam with its intricate rhythmic footwork, geometric and dynamic movements and expressive prowess, Seeta is creating a small scale version of the Rite of Spring that will tour the UK May 2019 including to Dance City. This will be the first time this iconic piece of music has been interpreted in this way, and an exciting bridge between two very technical, powerful and evocative art forms (Western Classical music and Indian Classical dance).
