Le Sacre (the Rite of Spring) – here is an answer to the Printemps des rues – Stravinsky will be sampled, the rite will be sacrificed, sounds of the street and of everyday life will disturb the partition to dramatize and modernise it so that it can be heard anew. It is created with a rhythmic structure of the work, but with pressurised relations in the temporality of movement, in harmony and contrast. Leaving the narration to the libretto in the partition to let Stravinsky unsatisfied once again, leaving the spectators to be ancestors, the balls be young girls, the juggler the sacrificed. Seated spectators encircling the game will form the spring rounds.

Francois Chat is an actor dancer-juggler, director. Mixing dance and juggling, since the creation of Clip-Clop in 1993 and L’oeuf du vent in 1996, to the most recent shows like Le Sacre du Printemps des rues in 2009, Francois Chat is both a remarkable juggler and a motion theatre artist. He divides his time between Paris and Venice, established the … et Compagnie and developed shows in a Venetian monastery, CTR (Centro teatrale di Ricerca) as a guest artist since 1999. Francois Chat regularly creates content for international theatres or festivals; with his unclassifiable style, he is the creator of more than fifteen works.
