Rosas & Ictus
What would it mean for choreography to perform as an exhibition ? This question is the point of departure for Work/Travail/Arbeid. In response, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker reimagines Vortex Temporum to the radically different temporal, spatial, and perceptual conditions of the museum. The choreographer does not simply bring performances into a new kind of space, but rethinks dance as a nine weeks long exhibition, accessible to the public. The original choreography, made for the condensed time of a performance is expanded in cycles of nine hours. Each hour offers new constellations of dancers and musicians dispersed through the multiple spaces of the museum. This project transforms the conditions that have long been essential to dance and gives a new form to the rigorous choreographic writing for which De Keersmaeker is known.
