La Monnaie ¦ Dance ¦ Golden Hours ¦ Intro
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
‘The Passage of Time...,’ the opening line of Brian Eno’s song Golden Hours on the album Another Green World, released in 1975, can be regarded as the linchpin that links Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s more recent body of work and her desire to work with the pop icon and master of ambient music, Brian Eno. For De Keersmaeker : ‘Pop represents our daily relation to music. It is part of our collective memory and combines music, theatre, dance and literature.’ The principles of choreographic structure developed in De Keersmaeker’s work over the years and honed in Vortex Temporum, will be further built upon : the dancers themselves will deconstruct and reconstruct Eno’s songs, stretching, condensing and altering our notion of time.
