In 2014, choreographer Dominique Brun created Sacre #2, based on The Rite of Spring, a major work of the 20th century, choreographed in 1913 by Nijinsky to music by Stravinsky. Dancer, choreographer and writer Enora Rivière experienced it with twenty-nine other dancers. In this book, based on interviews with them, she tells the story of this dance from the inside, from the dancers’ experiences, and their imaginative worlds. A gripping journey into The Sacre and its multiple “motors”.

Wampach, O.Dubois...). She has created hybrid projects (both choreographic and literary) – ob.scène, moteur, and manifestement – which question the act of dancing and writing, and develop the notion of choreographic narrative.
