After more than a century Urban Dance Theater Low Air is seeking to resurrect the ballet and orchestral concert work by composer Igor Stravinsky and carry it through the urban choreography. On 28th of May at the Arts Printing House Low Air presents contemporary and street dance performance "The Rite of Spring".
Although in Lithuania, like in the rest of the world, "The Rite of Spring" versions have been developed quite a lot, but it will be the first urban interpretation of this classical piece.
Idea and choreography by Laurynas Žakevičius and Airida Gudaitė – well known Lithuanian urban dance artists, the creative due known as Low Air, who uncovers the artistic potential of street dance and introduces it to theatre lovers across the country.

In 2012, the performance was nominated for the prestigious Lithuanian theatre award.
