Anne Teresa & Jolente De Keersmaeker/PARTS [BE]

Anne Teresa and Jolente De Keersmaeker will create a location-based production in a clearing in the woods. A group of more than 35 dancers who are in the final year of their training at PARTS engage in a dialogue with their natural surroundings: gravity, the musical sounds of nature, and the various rhythms of life outside the city. The underlying narratives come from Shakespeare and from the novella Somnium (1608) by the astronomer Johannes Kepler, an intriguing mix of science and fantasy. The performance explores dance as a game of gravity, guided by fantastical stories, and in a space-time beyond the boundaries of urban theatre.

More detailed info on dates & location follow in spring 2019.
