The Rite of Spring



Solo show by Emma Safe

Friday 1st September – Sunday 10th September 2017

Artists Workhouse, Studley, Warwickshire, B80 7AU

11.00am – 4.00pm (closed Mon & Tues)

Works inspired by Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring including drawings made during rehearsal with the National Youth Orchestra and (subject to confirmation) at the final performance (Friday 4th Aug, 7:30pm, Symphony Hall, Birmingham). These will be shown alongside ‘Prelude’ drawings and paintings developed in advance.

The resulting body of work, brought together for the first time at the ArtistsWorkhouse, will explore Stravinsky’s music through a series of shifting elemental abstractions punctuated by dancing – and disappearing – figures.

Rather than retell the Rite’s deeply uncomfortable narrative, I have used my encounter with Stravinsky to explore themes always central to my work: human potential, our interconnectivity with nature, transience and the edges between states of being.
