Rite is paired with a new work, common ground[s], created, performed and inspired by the lives of two remarkable women who have each juggled roles as choreographers, professors and grandmothers: Germaine Acogny and Malou Airaudo. Their tender choreographic response to Rite reflects their shared histories, emotional experiences and common ground.
