In the course of her re­search, Hélène Black­burn be­came in­creas­ingly in­ter­ested in The Rite of Spring. In this tow­er­ing work she found themes – spring, the elect, sac­ri­fice – con­ducive to the cre­ation of a show for young au­di­ences. Draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the en­ergy and raw power of the chore­og­ra­phy, she in­vited com­poser Martin Tétreault to cre­ate a mu­si­cal score that fosters a di­a­logue with Stravin­sky’s mas­ter­piece and the mu­sic of DJS so dear to ado­les­cents. While re­main­ing a work for gen­eral au­di­ences, Vari­a­tions S, con­ceived for eight dancers, will be unique in that it will be geared pri­mar­ily to ado­les­cents and pread­ole­cents – peo­ple go­ing through a stage of life so akin to the mu­ta­tions of spring.
