ICA: Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich
For the first time in over 30 years, renowned choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and her company Rosas return to Boston with Fase, Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich. Inspired by the propulsive compositions of minimalist composer Steve Reich, De Keersmaeker created a breakthrough choreographic work that redefined the landscape of contemporary dance.
Comprising three duets and one solo, the music and the dance start from the principle of phase shifting through tiny variations: movements that start out perfectly synchronous, but gradually slip and move out of sync, resulting in an ingenious play of continuously changing forms and patterns.
Having always danced Fase herself, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is now passing it on to two new dancers, for the first time in the work’s history.
