D'un soir un jour

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Rosas

D'un soir un jour

Under the title D’un soir un jour, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker combines six short choreographic episodes in an exceptionally rich musical journey that starts and ends with the music of Claude Debussy. At the core of this choreographic and musical voyage are two compositions, one of which was created for Rosas by the contemporary British composer George Benjamin, which are in their turn preceded and followed by short pieces by Debussy’s contemporary Igor Stravinsky. Six opportunities to share in De Keersmaeker’s unceasing obsession with the relationship between pure movement and music.
