Exile and sacrifice in The Rite of Spring as adapted for the Iranian lute.
Eleven dancers are seated in a circle on the floor, singing the sacrificial dance from The Rite of Spring when the chosen one has accepted her fate. One after the other, they stand up and dance their own private solo, expressing their relationship to exile and relinquishment. When all are exhausted, they come together for a group ritual, this time for the entire score. Sharifi is an Iranian living in Norway where he stands for an open approach, for a new form of dance. Now, for the first time, he has chosen to work with Iranian dancers only. As dancing is not allowed in Iran, they can only practice and develop their art as dance in exile.
