A Choreographer’s Score
Fase, Rosas danst Rosas, Elena's Aria, Bartók
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Bojana Cvejic
Winner of the Fernand Baudin Prize, the Prize for the Most Beautiful Books in Brussels and Wallonia.
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is one of the most prominent choreographers in contemporary dance. Her 1982 debut with Fase immediately attracted the attention of the international dance scene; since then De Keersmaeker and her company, Rosas, have created an impressive series of choreographic works that have been described as "pure writing with movement in time and space."
This book explores four of Rosas' early works: Fase, Rosas danst Rosas, Elena's Aria, and Bartók. In addition to sketches, notes, and photographs, it features four DVDs that include interviews with De Keersmaeker, as well as dance demonstrations and extensive video clips from each of the four works.
Bojana Cvejić is a performance theorist and maker, working in contemporary dance and performance also as dramaturge and performer.
