Rosas - The Song

The renowned choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker has earned many admirers over the years, with the leading figure providing a host of high quality shows over a long and illustrious career. From her early work in Brussels to the other works that have been seen around the world, she has shown others how it is done and, with her company Rosas, presented some stunning pieces of work. So when she returns to Sadler’s Wells in 2010 to present her new show “The Song”, there is likely to be a large and eager audience waiting to witness a true spectacle.

London theatre audiences will be in for a treat with “The Song”, which is described as a show about a world that is rushing in on itself. Alongside artists such as Michel Francois and Ann Veroniaca Janssens she has created a piece of work that demonstrates the world as it moves forwards at an increasingly faster tempo, with the human body stood amongst this whirlwind of change, right in the eye of the storm. Like the previous works of Rosas, it is likely to be a production that leaves audiences speechless and continues to cement Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker as one of the leading forces in world dance.

Rosas is a company that Anne Teresa de Keersmaker was able to set up in the early 1980s following successful shows such as “Fase, four movements to the music of Steve Reich”, which appeared on various stages in 1982. Her career has also seen her create the likes of “Asch”, “Kinok”, “Toccata”, “Woud” and “The Lisbon Piece”, amongst others, with these and more appearing in Brussels, Seville, Lisbon and more. So over many decades, Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, and Rosas, has managed to make a huge impression and it is likely that this will bode well for productions such as “The Song”.

But then, Sadler’s Wells – in addition to its sister venue the Peacock Theatre - is no stranger to high quality dance productions and this year will also see it host the likes of Iphigenie Auf Tauris and the return of Traces. So as ever, theatre tickets will be in high demand with audiences hoping to catch some high quality dance shows.

Rosas – The Song appears at Sadler’s Wells from Tuesday 19th October 2010 to Thursday 21st October 2010.
