The premiere of the ballet The Rite of Spring by composer Igor Stravinsky in Paris in 1913 was considered scandalous. Vaslav Nijinsky’s choreography, with which he depicted human primeval nature and its mysterious connection with the earth, seemed awkward and utterly absurd to the audience at the time with its rhythmic beats, full of dissonance. The spectators were more enthusiastic about Stravinsky’s ten years younger ballet Les Noces, whose content also deals with the ritual of a bride leaving home and getting married. Stravinsky depicted the folklore of rural Russia in a vocal-instrumental work, and the first choreography for the ballet was created by Bronislava Nijinska, the sister of Vaslav Nijinsky. These two performances were choreographed by Edward Clug, a recipient of many awards (including a nomination for the Russian Golden Mask award for the project Quattro) whose work has been enriching Slovenian culture for a number of years. Clug’s creations originate from Nijinsky’s hermetic choreographies and their “disturbing” progressiveness, with which the internationally acclaimed Romanian dancer and choreographer paid tribute to Nijinsky and his role in the development of contemporary dance.
