Henrik Schaefer

In retrospect, the solo version of Stravinsky’s Sacre du Printemps (Sacre I) can be interpreted as a bleak, oppressive dance about his own life. The ballet is one of the late works by Uwe Scholz, one of the most important choreographers of the 20th century. Scholz brought Stravinsky’s work on stage in two parts: Sacre I is a unique solo danced by Giovanni Di Palma on the four-hand piano version, the powerful Sacre II is staged for nearly 60 dancers (Soloist: Kiyoko Kimura) accompanied by the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. This ballet was filmed as part of a portrait of Scholz in February 2003 and is now released in full length for the first time. A unique document of Uwe Scholz’ exceptional talent.
