ACHTERLAND – Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Rosas

Achterland (1990) is a seminal choreographyin Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s oeuvre. This was the first dance material that she wrote specifically for men. For this production, three male dancers joined Rosas, which had previously been a predominantly female company. The minimalism and prevalent femininity of Rosas’ early pieces gave way to an ambiguous no-man’s-land in which boundaries and symbols were blurred. In Achterland, young girls dress up in suits, women in men’s suits, while young men eagerly imitate the dancing women. Györgi Ligeti’s and Eugène Ysaÿe’s imbues the production with a playful-virtuoso atmosphere. The violinist and pianist onstage not only interpret the score, but also play an active role in the dancing – an approach that De Keersmaeker would repeat in many subsequent projects. Last season, the reprise of Achterland starring a new generation of Rosas dancers made a tremendous impression: don’t miss this opportunity to see it again.
