Thierry Thieû Niang | A TIME OF SPRING at The Invisible Dog Art Center

For A TIME OF SPRING, Thierry Thieû Niang will create a dynamic three-week process, during which a group of performers of different ages will tell the story of Vaslav Nijinsky's infamous opening of THE RITE OF SPRING. This collaboratively choreographed piece will be performed for the public with the participation of an actor reading from Nijinsky's own account of the notorious opening.

Thierry Thieû Niang is a dancer and choreographer whose art has been influenced by his work as a physical therapist in France. He has danced for choreographers such as Hela Fattoumi, Éric Lamoureux, Daniel Larrieu, Christine Gérard, Daniel Dobbels, and Odile Duboc. He began to choreograph after returning from Vietnam as part of his fellowship with the Villa Médicis in 1993. Since 2000, he has worked extensively in theater and opera with world-renowned institutions. He offers courses and choreographic workshops for children and senior citizens, and works frequently in schools, at-risk communities, hospitals, and prisons.
