Brooklyn's own art center, The Invisible Dog, is up to something special this time around.

This April, TID is bringing French director and choreographer Thierry Niang to the borough for two weeks to create a production of SPRING (inspired by Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring").

Get this: the production will work with 15 local participants, ages 60 to 100 (seriously), and will stage a rendition of Stravinsky's "Spring", a composition already recreated multiple times in France and Brussels.

Thierry Niang, if you don't know, is a dancer and choreographer who's influenced by his work as a physical therapist.

Having danced with choreopgraphers such as Hela Fattoumi, Eric Lamoreaux, Daniel Larrieu, Christine Gérard, Daniel Dobbels and Odile Duboc.

A one-time only performance, the night should be rattled with senior stardom.

If this piques your interest, write Thierry for one of the following sessions.

4:30 to 6:00 p.m. (arrive at 4:30 p.m.)

6:30 to 8:00 p.m. (arrive at 6:30 p.m.)

Rehearsals will be held at The Invisible Dog May 1 to 10, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

To wit, here is a European performance of said SPRING.
