WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Les Noces is part of the Pascal Rioult Dance Theatre's annual Joyce Theater Season. Les Noces is a fesh dance set to Stravinsky's classic opera of the same name. In his deconstructed version of Les Noces, Rioult once again defies the original take on a classic score. Commissioned by Sergei Diaghilev in 1914, Bronislava Nijinska's version explored a 19th century Russian peasant wedding. For Rioult, the music by Stravinsky presents a chance to strip away the expected social and religious constructs of a marriage ritual to explore the anxieties of leaving a safe and innocent world for a life of sexual discovery. Unlike in the Nijinska classic, in which women dominated the stage, men and women are equal partners in Rioult's interpretation.
