May 2013 will mark the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring), created collaboratively by Vaslav Nijinsky, Igor Stravinsky, and Nicholas Roerich. Le Sacre du printemps is regarded by many artists and scholars as a seminal work in the histories of dance, music, and theatre. As part of a centennial celebration of this important interdisciplinary work, the Faculty of Fine Arts at York University is hosting a conference that will include scholarly papers, panels, and workshops as well as a performance featuring a revisioning of Le Sacre du printemps and musical works from the early twentieth century.
