Rain - Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Rosas & Ictus
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's world-renowned company Rosas returns as part of our contemporary classics series with her iconic piece Rain.
Known for her appreciation of mathematical structure and the geometric use of space, De Keersmaeker pushes these concepts to their limits to form a deceptively simple piece, using layers, repetition and variation. Each of the 10 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 Seve Reich's masterpiece, the minimalistic Music for 18 Musicians, which is inspired by breath rhythms.
