Iconic BAM Artists

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker

Considered one of the most original and influential choreographers working today, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker founded her company, Rosas, in 1983. With a sensibility born as much in New York as in her native Belgium, she has developed a rigorous and ingenious choreography in which form and structure create visceral emotion onstage, garnering critical acclaim and a passionate following both in Europe and the US. She has worked with composers of equal daring, including Steve Reich, John Cage, and Thierry de Mey, among others. From 1992 to 2007, De Keersmaeker and Rosas were resident choreographer and company of Théâtre de la Monnaie, Belgium’s national opera house. She was last at BAM as part of Steve Reich Evening (2008 Next Wave). In 2011 she was awarded the prestigious Samuel H. Scripps/American Dance Festival Award for Lifetime Achievement.
