Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker

Length : 1 h 10

Meet the artists : May 5

An international icon of the contemporary dance scene, Flemish choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker will be presenting one of her great masterpieces. Created in 2001 and set to the driving music of Steve Reich and now part of the repertoire of the Ballet de l’Opéra de Paris, Rain delivers the quintessence of her choreographic genius and musical intelligence. It features infinite variations of vivid motifs repeated over and over, mathematical forms of rosettes taking shape in a space transformed into a playground. Her 10 dancers trace the incessant movement of life on a stage awash in soft light. The giant rope curtain hanging in a semicircle at the back of the stage reinforces the image of an animated landscape that their powerful yet quite natural dance conveys, an image emerging from tension and release, dizzying acceleration and sudden stops. An electrifying, hypnotic piece. Exhilarating.
