Belgian company Rosas is always at the forefront of European contemporary dance. We welcome them to the Teatre Principal, where they will perform three of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's early works. In 1986, De Keersmaeker launched herself feet-first into the world of contemporary classical music with her work based on Bartók's String Quartet No. 4. 

De Keersmaeker, with her playful yet combative choreography, assumes the seemingly mammoth task of unravelling the dance through the intricate rhythms and layered harmonies of Bartók. Then, 1992’s Grosse Fuge sees De Keersmaeker search for a masculine vocabulary, making her dancers defy gravity in a work that is a physical representation of the ingenious use of Beethoven’s counterpoint.

The final piece of the evening is Verklärte Nacht from 1995. It recounts a shamelessly romantic tale in which the contrasting feelings between a man and a woman are dissected and performed as an expressive duet based on the composition of the same name by Schönberg. Each of the three pieces represents a choreographical response to a specific historical composition. It allows De Keersmaeker to expertly show off her creativity and innovation through abstract conceptualisation and narrative composition.
