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.
