— Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Rosas
Performance

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker creates a choreographic object in which Brancusi’s shapes resonate

The performance starts and ends at the opening and closing hours of the exhibition Brancusi. Sublimation of Form. It is accessible at all times to the visitors to the exhibition.

Constantin Brancusi’s sculptures capture the suggestion of lightness, clarity and transparency in solid matter. His work explores the tension between the concrete and the abstract, between horizontal anchoring and vertical movement. Basing herself on one and the
same intuition, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker created a choreographic object in which
Brancusi’s shapes resonate. A continuous play between the materiality of the body and the
pursuit of an ethereal quality grants the movement the translucent light and weightlessness
so characteristic of Brancusi’s art, modern and yet imbued with a centuries-old
craftsmanship.


In 1980, after studying dance at Mudra School in Brussels and Tisch School of the Arts in New York, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker (b. 1960) created Asch, her first choreographic work. Two years later came the premiere of Fase, Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich. De Keersmaeker established the dance company Rosas in Brussels in 1983, while creating the work Rosas danst Rosas. Since these breakthrough pieces, her choreography has been grounded in a rigorous and prolific exploration of the relationship between dance and
music. She has created with Rosas a wide-ranging body of work engaging the musical structures and scores of several periods, from early music to contemporary and popular idioms. Her choreographic practice also draws formal principles from geometry, numerical patterns, the natural world, and social structures to offer a unique perspective on the body’s articulation in space and time. In 1995 De Keersmaeker established the school P.A.R.T.S. (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios) in Brussels in association with De Munt/La Monnaie.
