‘Achterland’ in front of the lens

The Rosas-classic in 17 pictures

There are many reasons why Achterland has been a cornerstone of the Rosas-repertoire since its premiere in 1990: its historical value, being the first of their productions to debut in La Monnaie, or the unique musical marriage between Györgi Ligeti and Eugène Ysaÿe. But what stands out the most after close to thirty years, is the groundbreaking choreography. Discover the iconic production in the photo series below, and see for yourself that even still images can resonate with the dancer's energetic virtuosity.
