Rite Redux at York U


Inspired by the iconic ballet Le Sacre du printemps originally choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky, to the score by Igor Stravinsky, Rite Redux features new choreography by Professors Holly Small (YDE Artistic Director), Carol Anderson, Darcey Callison, and Susan Cash. The Director of Design is Prof. William Mackwood. Costumes are by Julia Tribe. Produced by the Departments of Dance and Music in the Faculty of Fine Arts at York University.

2013 marks the 25th anniversary of the York Dance Ensemble, the resident company of York University’s Department of Dance. The YDE provides students with pre-professional experience creating, producing, performing, and touring in a company setting, and has launched the careers of scores of outstanding young Canadian dance artists. Join us as Rite Redux honours this momentous achievement!

Featuring a stellar program of performances by the 2012-13 YDE, with:
· YDE Alumni Nicole Rose Bond, Irvin Chow, Brittany Duggan, and Sky Fairchild-Waller.
· Musicians Prof. Michael Coghlan, Kim Chow-Morris, John Kruspe, and Prof. Christina Petrowska Quilico.
