Rite of Spring


Pointless Theatre presents a new, wordless adaptation of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet, with an original story by Co-Artistic Directors Matt Reckeweg and Patti Kalil.

This wordless piece will fuse puppetry, dance and pantomime to tell an original story of a future world where few humans are left to survive with minimal resources. Exploring themes of human desperation, environmental fertility, and group sacrifice, the show aims to bring the intensity of the original score to a contemporary, multi-disciplinary theatrical experience.
