A short original play presented as part of The Moxie Fords "Rite of Spring" show at Stillpointe Theater in April 2017.
Winter in Baltimore; intersection of a busy thoroughfare; Igor Spring, a wildly dancing homeless man, blocking traffic, screams at drivers in their cars to get out and dance with him to ward off winter (he personifies the seasons as teenage children of Mother Earth) and coax spring to begin early. Officer Stravinsky, a female cop, approaches Igor Spring calmly but firmly, trying to get him out of the road for his safety and to fix the traffic problem. Spring is obsessed with the symphony “The Rite of Spring” and antagonizes Officer Stravinsky who has no clue as to what the man is talking about, or how he is criticizing how tied she is to her profession, rules, law, and “the sidewalk”. At the end, just like the girl in the real symphony who dances herself to death, Igor Spring runs off-stage committing suicide by letting a car going in the opposite direction hit him. The opening to the symphony, as well as the sound effects of honking horns, plays throughout the entire play, with car crash sounds at the end.
