Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and pianist Alain Franco are joining forces again. Their 2008 production Zeitung – an exploration of the essential intersection of music and dance – forms the fascinating premise for a new creation, with Louis Nam Le Van Ho as a third choreographer at the wheel.

The young choreographer and dancer makes his own dance language collide with De Keersmaeker’s. Through the bodies of eight new, young dancers and a grand piano – played live onstage by Alain Franco – they literally transpose the dance material and musical choices of ten years ago to the present.

The evolution and the harmony of musical history is again the leitmotif in Zeitigung: Bach, Schönberg, Brahms, and Anton Webern all come together in the geometrical principles and improvisations in the choreography.

Thu 12.04 - Sun 15.04.18

Achterland (1990) is a seminal dance production in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s oeuvre. For the first time, the musicians took a central position on stage, and played an active role in the overall dynamic. This also was the choreographer’s first time writing dancing material specifically for men. The minimalism and dominant femininity of early Rosas pieces gave way to an ambiguous no-man’s-land in which boundaries and signs were blurred.
