Rosas danst Rosas

Three dancers is muted colors like a soft grey and black, turning in motion with wooden chairs behind them. Anne Van Aerschot

In 1983, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker had her international breakthrough with Rosas danst Rosas, a performance that has since become a benchmark in the history of postmodern dance. Building on the minimalism initiated in Fase, abstract movements constitute the basis of a layered choreographic structure in which repetition plays the lead role. Four female dancers dance themselves, again and again in a work that is unequivocally feminine. Repetitive, “maximalistic” music by Thierry De Mey and Peter Vermeersch were created concurrently with the choreography.
