Xavier Le Roy

Le Sacre du Printemps
Xavier LeRoy??ôs premise begins with a study of the expressive ???choreography??? of Sir Simon Rattle??ôs conducting style which LeRoy will use as the inspiration for an evening-length performance of Sacred du Printemps. LeRoy will recreate and elaborate on the conductor??ôs movements on stage using the documentary film ???Rhythm is It!,??? which features Rattle conducting ???The Rite of Spring??? by Igor Stravinsky. The piece will be performed by LeRoy accompanied by audio playback arrangement which isolates each instrument in the orchestra and creating the sensation of that each audience member is actually a musician in the orchestra, therein turning audience into orchestra and dancer into conductor.
