“The almost impossible arithmetic of Stravinsky’s musical language is what is explored in ‘Igor-hush hush’. Studying part one of ‘The Rite of Spring – The Adoration of the Earth’, the poly-rhythmic score acts as the framework in which a choreographic interpretation is explored – in silence. Learning the unrelenting score is a ‘rite’ in itself in which a mind-body ceremony develops. The challenge is almost ‘un-human’ in it’s outcome, producing a discipline that evokes a sense of survival, to survive the score itself – all while being performed within the irony of ‘dead silence’. This study is the consequence of an attempt to produce a musical illustration within a sonic vacuum and is imagined for a group of dancers.” Melanie Lane
