Rosas Danst Rosas
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker/Rosas
Saturday, October 4
“This work immediately established Ms. De Keersmaeker as a new force on the European contemporary dance scene. It hasn’t lost anything of its original power.” The New York Times
The original dance that inspired Beyonce’s “Countdown.”
The seminal dance by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, one of the most influential choreographers of the past 30 years, Rosas danst Rosas was all about rhythmic complexity, stylized minimalism, fierce abstract feminism and choreographic rigor when it premiered in 1983. Beyoncé would agree: Her “Countdown” music video draws heavily on Rosas danst Rosas for choreography, costuming and set. Now, you can see Rosas danst Rosas live in a rare touring performance 30 years after its making, coming to FringeArts on October 4-5 as an extension of the 2014 Fringe Festival.
