Spring Fever

From Stravinsky's Sacre du Printemps

Spring Fever

Every year, under the direction of a professional director, the Accademia Dimitri undertakes the creation of a new final work for the Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, destined for an exciting international tour. In 2024, the renowned Swiss choreographer and dancer Philipp Egli will be at the helm of the creation of Spring Fever. The debut of this show will take place in Verscio on 17 May 2024, followed by an adventurous tour in Switzerland and abroad.


We have chosen to explore Stravinsky's legendary work without focusing on the sacrificial theme, opting instead for a direct approach to the magnificent composition through notes and music. We are shaping a body choreography based on the score, immersing ourselves completely in this extraordinary musical creation. The act of surrendering to this experience arouses spring-like feelings, but at the same time, the need to surrender completely can generate both deep fears and feverish dreams. During an evening of dance, we focus on what happens when we dare to look deeply, accepting closeness and intimacy.

In the context of a concert-dance, where our bodies become the instruments that internalise and resonate the score, a fascinating question arises: can a Sacre du Printemps come to life even in the absence of sound?
