Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s Rosas
BAM Howard Gilman Opera House
Oct 19 - 20
De Keersmaeker and her Belgium-based company Rosas return to BAM with the premiere of two works,
En Atendant & Cesena. The works are said to be “Grounded in the 14th-century polyphonic vocal style known as ars subtilior,” and will be performed live. “In En Atendant, De Keersmaeker explores the transition from twilight into night, as eight bodies cluster, disperse, and reconnect…” “In Cesena, a new day dawns as 19 dancers, dressed casually in sneakers, inscribe their movements on a circle of sand. With references to the bubonic plague and a bloody medieval massacre by papal legate in the northern Italian city of Cesena,” notes the press release. Find out more www.bam.org.
