Rosas – Early works : (10 – 16 Apr 2011)

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is one of the most influential European choreographers of the last 30 years. The Early Works project is a look back at four of her past works, which represent the early period in her career: Fase, Rosas danst Rosas, Elena’s Aria and Bartók / Mikrokosmos.
Characterised by a pared down movement vocabulary and the honing of dance elements to a pure minimum, these works made De Keersmaeker a dance sensation… when they were first performed in the 1980s, and have since turned her into one the most important dance-makers of her generation. Don’t miss these seminal dance pieces!

Elena’s Aria (1984)
Thursday 14 April, 7.30pm
UK premiere
“A highly original work of art” New York Times Elena’s Aria is largely the result of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker questioning her own work: she forgoes the use of repetitive music, using arias by Donizetti, Mozart and Bizet instead and uses film projections and spoken word too. In this piece on love and heartbreak, the dancers read passages from Dostoevsky, Brecht and Tolstoy.

Bartók / Mikrokosmos (1987)
Saturday 18 April, 7.30pm
“Powerful” (New York Times)
Bartók / Mikrokosmos is a performance about dance and music, and specifically about the pleasure of dancing and playing together. The evening includes the dance duet Mikrokosmos, set to a composition by Bela Bartók for two pianos, a musical work by György Ligeti, performed by two pianists, and a dance to the Fourth String Quartet by Bela Bartók. All the music is performed live.
