At first, it is night for a long time, absolutely silence, followed later by the dawn. There is no stillness, no abbreviations, but a virtuoso nuanced change in minimalistic loops of movement. The constraints of everyday are palpable, but just as invisible as the questions regarding a possible male counterpart…

In 1983, this piece marked the beginning of a new era in contemporary dance. It was equally euphorically celebrated and vehemently detested by critics and audience members at the time. »Rosas danst Rosas« is one of the few contemporary dance pieces to have achieved the status of a classic. In conjunction with music and rhythm, the choreography consists of simple everyday movements. Even 33 years after its creation and performed by four young dancers of the next generation, this piece has lost none of its impact. It was already presented at the second euro‑scene Leipzig in 1992.

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, born in 1960 in Mechelen, is one of the most significant contemporary choreographers. She presented her first production »Asch« in 1980 in Brussels, followed by »Fase« in 1982. De Keersmaeker founded her company Rosas in 1983, which she presented to the world with »Rosas danst Rosas« – one of her greatest successes. Numerous works followed that have been performed around the world. Rosas furthermore performed at euro‑scene Leipzig with »Rain« in 2002 and »En Atendant« in 2012.
