About

In few words:

New York composer Steve Reich's percussions provide a mesmerizingly rhythmical score for Drumming Live, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's ballet created in 1998 by the Rosas Company, and performed today by the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet. Like Rain, which entered the Ballet's repertoire in 2011, Drumming Live is one of the choreographer's most abstract works and possesses great formal sophistication. Twelve dancers and nine percussionists, bathed in orange fluorescent light, are permeated by an obsessive pulsing and a state of trance which seem to extend the boundaries of space. For a breathtaking hour, developed around a single musical motif, the spectator is caught up in a spiral of whirling dance and a stunning journey.
