Images of a quite wonderful performance of the ballet "Le Sacre du Printemps" (the Rite of Spring) with music by Igor Stravinsky.
This production (and its visual flair) seemed to be inspired by the classic Pina Bausch choreography (google that!).
But in this case, the modern dance of some 45 minutes was performed by three artists affected with Down syndrome.
The venue was special too: the grand hall of the Antwerp Palace of Justice (a Richard Rogers design).
This combination of factors resulted in an amazing, magical evening.
Images of the whole event of which this performance was a part, can be found here:

Here, a stylistic reference is made to Trisha Brown.
I still feel the Pina Bausch visualization (see links below) is very reminiscent.
