As you'll no doubt recall, Londonist likes its dance performances to be a little bit different. And the opening season at the South Bank Centre looks set not to disappoint us.

At a pair of concerts consisting of a trio of 20th century classical music, the Centre promises "virtual 3D dancers", requiring the audience to don Eighties-tastic red-blue tinted glasses to enjoy the performance. A single dancer on the stage will perform in response to Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, and her movements will be interpreted live by digital artist Klaus Obermaier to create a visual spectacle.

In fact, the website promises that "her body will appear to deconstruct, morph, multiply and engulf the audience. Like an acid trip or your money back!" (OK, we made up that last sentence.)

Rites is being performed at the South Bank Centre on the 26th and 27th June. More information on their website here. Tickets still available for both nights from £12 to £55.
