Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
Rosas

“…nothing less than glorious.”
—Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)

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 En Atendant, De Keersmaeker’s style of deliberate, fluid movement takes us into the soft glow of twilight. Eight bodies cluster, disperse, and connect again in a corporeal counterpoint, echoing the dissonant music of an onstage trio (viol, recorder, and voice).

Concept by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
Created with and performed by Rosas
Set design by Michel François
Costume design by Anne-Catherine Kunz
