Choreographer and performer Seeta Patel has re-imagined the iconic ballet The Rite of Spring in the classical Indian dance style Bharatanatyam and brings it to The Lowry in Salford May 13 as part of a UK tour.

Patel’s production is set to be a flirtation between East and West as it looks beyond notions of the exotic and orientalist perceptions of Eastern classical arts.

Patel’s The Rite of Spring brings together four of London’s key organisations: principal sponsor the Bagri Foundation, and co-commissioners the Place, and Akademi.
