In her new creation, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker focuses her choreographic research on the 'Mystery' or 'Rosary' sonatas by the 17th-century composer Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, who hails from Bohemia.
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker created her first choreography Asch in 1980, after studying dance at Mudra in Brussels and the Tisch School of the Arts in New York. Two years later 'Fase, Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich' premiered. In 1983 De Keersmaeker founded the dance company Rosas in Brussels, while creating the performance Rosas danst Rosas. Since then her choreographic work has been based on a meticulous exploration of the link between dance and music.
With Rosas, she has created an extensive body of work that uses musical structures and scores from different eras, from early music to contemporary compositions and pop music. Her choreographic practice also derives formal principles from geometry, mathematical schemes, nature and social structures, resulting in a unique view of the body's movement in time and space.
