Rite of Spring (2015)
12min · Short, Drama, Music · 1 March 2015
Enthusiastic young director Flori rehearses a fringe theatre production of Igor Stravinsky's revolutionary ballet "The Rite of Spring". She is dissatisfied with the performance of her much older soloist Helen who seems unable to accept the role of the female sacrifice who literally dances herself to death in an act of devotion. Flori therefore uses manipulating directing strategies to force Helen into her part as the victim. Thus, the reality of the play and the reality of the rehearsals begin to mix.
