dance - Season 14/15
Arnold Schönberg’s Verklärte Nacht (1899) is inspired by a poem by Richard Dehmel, about a woman who tells the man she loves she is pregnant by another man. In 1995 Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker created a group choreography based on Schönberg’s composition. She has now rewritten the piece as a duet. A shameless romantic love story in the dark light of a Verklärte Nacht (transfigured night).
In an installation by stage designer Jozef Wouters, choreographer Claire Croizé is working with three young dancers. Primitive plays with the positive yet also destructive forces of youth.
Wim Vandekeybus and his dancers are going out into the streets. Just dancing, on the paving, without music: a one-off street collage showing extracts from twenty-five years of dance history.
The Moroccan choreographer Taoufiq Izeddiou and his dancers cross a site of 100m, but they take their time to do it, so that you, the audience, can take it calmer too. Sit down, watch and relax!
In this performance, created on the “Joan Baez in Concert Part 2” live LP, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Rosas dancer and musician Carlos Garbin explore the relationship between dance and song, and between different notions of performance and concert: “My dancing is my singing, my singing is my dancing”.
