Rain - T01795228395Known for her appreciation of mathematical structure and the geometric use of space, Anne Theresa De Keersmaeker pushes these concepts to their limits to form a deceptively simple piece, using layers repetition and variation. Each of the ten dancers plays a distinct role in their close group, before giving in to the power of the collective with an exuberant and playful camaraderie. Set to Steve Reich's masterpiece, the minimalist Music for 18 Musicians, which is inspired by breath rhythms.Company Rosas. Music Steve Reich.

Rosas - Golden Hours (As You Like It) - T21236057UK Premiere. Inspired by the classic comedy As You Like It and featuring excerpts from Brian Eno's Another Green World, contemporary dance icon Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker replaces Shakespeare's dialogue with dance to convey characterisation and drama in this radical new creation. Following one of her key choreographic principles, the dancers are challenged to embody the meaning behind the words, and through idiosyncratic movements express themselves with a rich, colourful and energetic palette. A gently ironic world is created full of masquerades and games of seduction, with themes of attraction, repulsion, misunderstanding and silliness, where language doesn't need deciphering to be understood.

Rosas - Early Works - T1368025199Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is one of the most influential European choreographers of the last 30 years. Working with film, music and theatre, she has been lauded by critics and attracted a popular following for her hypnotically beautiful, minimalist choreography. Sadler's Wells has enjoyed a strong relationship with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and her pioneering dance company Rosas since the company had its first performances here in 2002. The Early Works project is a look back at four of their past works, which represent the early period in De Keersmaeker’s career. 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. Over four performances, this retrospective lets audiences enjoy some rarely seen pieces and experience the talent in the making of this groundbreaking choreographer.
