Elena's Aria

Elena's Aria

When it was created, Elena’s Aria consisted largely of the choreographer questioning her own work, evaluating her past work and seeking a way forward. In this production, the foundation of repetitive music has disappeared and we only hear arias and noises in the background; the movements have to find their own way. Time and space are filled with feelings that are almost palpable. For the first time in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s work, film images are projected and the spoken word is given a place on stage.
