WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Fabulous Beast exploded onto the Irish arts scene in 1997. The company is led by Michael Keegan-Dolan, one of Ireland's most talented, challenging and innovative contemporary artists.
Keegan-Dolan reimagines his Olivier-nominated version of The Rite of Spring, which premiered at the London Coliseum in 2009 to great critical acclaim. Named as one of a few accounts that has truly realised Stravinsky's vision alongside those of Vaslav Nijinsky, Kenneth MacMillan, Pina Bausch and L?onide Massine, it has been described as "inspired" (The Times). The evening is completed by Keegan-Dolan's new interpretation of Petrushka, composed by Stravinsky in 1911. Performed by the exquisite dancers of Fabulous Beast, both pieces together create an intoxicating double bill of dance theatre that honours the searing modernity of Stravinsky's music. Running time: 1hr 40mins (including one 20min interval)
