On the opening day of her dance installation at Kunstsammlung NRW, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker will participate in an artist talk with Kunstahalle Basel director and curator Elena Filipovic, who edited De Keersmaeker’s exhibition catalog Work / Travail / Arbeid.
The installation—curated by Isabelle Malz—is a reconception of De Keersmaeker’s 1982 work FASE, FOUR MOVEMENTS TO THE MUSIC OF STEVE REICH. The piece will also be performed once in a stage version at Tanzhaus NRW.
The dancers—in alternating pairs—are Laura Bachman and Soa Ratsifandrihana, and Yuika Hashimoto and Laura Maria Poletti.
Following the presentation in Düsseldorf, De Keersmaeker will return to New York City where she is choreographing Ivo van Hove’s new Broadway production of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim’s West Side Story. Previews begin on December 10, with opening night set for February 6, 2020.
October 29–November 10, 2019.
Starting every hour from noon.
