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, featuring the ravishing vocal group graindelavoix.
