Seeta Patel Presents 'The Rite of Spring'

9 - 23 May 2019, UK tour

We are thrilled to announce we are a principal sponsor of ‘The Rite of Spring’, presented by award-winning choreographer Seeta Patel. The production will be an exciting exploration of two technical, powerful and evocative art forms - Western classical music and Indian classical dance. Seeta takes on the challenge of re-imagining the iconic ‘The Rite of Spring’ in the Indian classical dance style of Bharatanatyam, with its intricate rhythmic footwork, expressive prowess set to Stravinsky’s masterful music.


The Bagri Foundation, established in 1990, is a family foundation spanning three generations. With a shared spirit of curiosity we are driven by a desire to learn and are inspired by creative, unique and unexpected ideas that weave the traditional and the contemporary of Asian culture. Through a diverse programme of film, visual arts, music, dance, literature, courses and lectures, we give artists and experts from across Asia, or those inspired by the continent, wider visibility on the global stage.


We are proud to forge partnerships with a number of established organisations. These include: the Ashmolean Museum, The Royal Opera House, the Science Museum, the Royal Collection Trust, Shubbak Festival of Contemporary Arab Culture, the London Indian Film Festival, The Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts, the River to River Florence Indian Film Festival, Shorts on Tap, Whitechapel Gallery, the Barbican and Sharjah Art Foundation.
