Public Energy’s latest season kicks off Wednesday with a six-week workshop that aims to turn ordinary Joes into performers.
The group’s artist-in-residence Brian Solomon is hosting a series of dance workshops for his upcoming production, Nogojiwanong Rite of Spring.
The piece will re-envision the original Rite of Spring, a 1913 ballet and orchestral concert through an Indigenous lens.
Solomon plans to combine up to 40 community members and professional dancers for two outdoor performances in October.
“This is something Brian is pretty passionate about, working everyday people into performance and having them rediscover their bodies in new and imaginative ways,” said Bill Kimball, the group’s artistic producer.
