Fase: Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich
18 July – 20 July 2012
One of the most important choreographers of the late 20th century, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker will adapt her widely acclaimed 1982 performance Fase: Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich for the first of Tank 2’s artists’ residencies.
Fase, an hour-long minimalist dance performed by De Keersmaeker and a partner, is considered to be the starting point of the contemporary dance movement that developed in Flanders during the 1980s. In her choreography, De Keersmaeker explores the relationship between music and dance and aims to articulate the basic principles of the musical composition rather than allowing the dance to simply illustrate the music.
