Rosas danst Rosas

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Rosas

Tags/Genres Dance

In this riveting performance by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, repetition plays the lead role. A seminal postmodern work, Rosas danst Rosas is unequivocally feminine—four women dancers engage in a dialogue of fierce movements that are countered by small everyday gestures. The exhaustion and perseverance that come with it create an emotional tension that contrasts sharply with the rigorous structure of this choreography by an internationally renowned dancemaker.
