Dedicated to the American avant-garde minimalist composer, Steve Reich, who has been a marked source of artistic stimulation to Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker since the beginning of her career, this full length evening reveals both how the transparent logic of Reich’s minimalistic music became increasingly complex and refined in his compositions dating from 1967 to 1979, and how Rosas have (from 1981 to present) taken strikingly varied approaches, from stringently formal to playfully nonchalant, to Reich’s driving, percussive rhythms and evolving, repetitive patterns.
