Not seen in the UK since 2008, Pina Bausch’s astonishing Rite of Spring,
a savage interpretation of Stravinsky’s work in which pagan rituals culminate
in the death of a sacrificial victim, puts the spotlight on Tamara Rojo’s English
National Ballet – a company going from strength to strength.

The piece, first performed in 1975, is well known for the punishing lengths
to which it pushes its dancers, asking them to rapidly contort their bodies over
and over again. The Paris Opera Ballet is the only company, other than Bausch’s own, to undertake it.

So it’s a coup that it has been entrusted to the ENB, making them the first
British company to dance it. And dance it they do, in a terrifying expression
of raw human emotion, showing the classically trained dancers in a completely
different light: uninhibited, wild, inspired.
