Pointless Theatre presents RITE OF SPRING


Pointless Theatre's RITE OF SPRING  at Dance Loft on 14
April 27 - May 27


Pointless Theatre presents a new adaptation of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet, featuring an all-female cast. In a world of environmental ruin, only the Women have survived. What are they willing to sacrifice to bring back Spring?

ABOUT: RITE OF SPRING imagines a future wrought by ecological collapse and human desperation, told vividly through dance, puppetry, mask, and Stravinsky’s iconic score. RITE OF SPRING marks the company’s first wordless production since 2014’s DOCTOR CALIGARI, and the second show in their new home at Dance Loft on 14. It features an original story by Co-Artistic Directors Matt Reckeweg and Patti Kalil, and is directed by Reckeweg.

STORY: The Earth is scorched and barren, but the elder Sage has visions of Spring returning. This brings the Women hope for their ever-dying lands. But they are the last of their kind, and this prophecy comes at a cost - one of them must be slaughtered. Who will be the Chosen One? What are they willing to sacrifice? Is it too late to reverse the damage that has been done?

CW: Contains images of death and violence.
