The HuntMusic: Stravinsky, Igor (1882-1971)
Choreography: Tero Saarinen (Original)

Tero Saarinen’s signature solo HUNT is one of the most celebrated contemporary interpretations of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, praised by audiences and critics alike. An exciting new screen version based on Saarinen’s final performances of the work offers one more chance to experience this ground-breaking work on television. Commissioned by the Venice Biennale in 2002, HUNT is a collaboration of choreographer-dancer Tero Saarinen and multimedia artist Marita Liulia. Saarinen toured with the work until the Rite's centennial in 2013. Finland's national public service broadcasting company YLE recorded the choreographer's last performances in his home city, Helsinki, at the main stage of the Finnish National Theatre in May 2013. Featuring material shot on stage and in the YLE studios, this exciting new screen version of HUNT gives audiences the possibility to experience this ground-breaking work once more - and for the first time ever on the silver screen.
