about


Three works from her youth, three dialogues with guiding figures from classical music. The complex musical architecture of Quartet n°4 reflects the playfulness and seductive nature of ballerinas. With Die Grosse Fuge, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker brings her quest for a masculine vocabulary to its conclusion with a work on the theme of the fall. The final part, Verklärte Nacht, scrutinises the sentiment of love through the wanderings of a couple whose image is fragmented into multiple images and sequences of itself. Of equal musical intensity, these three ballets interpenetrate in vibrant osmosis.
