Choreography by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
Musical direction by Björn Schmelzer
Rosas and graindelavoix

The enormously influential choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker has a distinctive ear for music—finding mesmerizing drama in patterns of sound to add stunning dimensionality to movement. This fall, she returns to BAM with her Belgium-based company, Rosas, to present two companion works grounded in the exquisite polyphonic medieval vocal style known as ars subtilior: En Atendant, a breathtaking showcase of movement counterpoint; and Cesena, which features the ravishing vocal group graindelavoix. 

In Cesena, a new day begins: dancers inscribe their sweeping movements on a stage circled with sand, while singers (from the ravishing vocal ensemble graindelavoix, led by Björn Schmelzer) intone vibrant tapestries of sound, invoking the ancient and the modern alike.

Concept by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker & Björn Schmelzer
Created with and performed by Rosas and graindelavoix
Set design by Ann Veronica Janssens
Costume design by Anne-Catherine Kunz
