Abstract:

This third installment in a series devoted to the work of acclaimed choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker focuses on two of her notable works, 'Drumming' and 'Rain'. Both works, which were among De Keersmaeker's most successful premieres, are known for their energetic, virtuosic dancing and formal richness. They also feature minimalist scores by composer Steve Reich, costumes by famed designer Dries Van Noten, and striking scenic design. In this publication, fascinating interviews with De Keersmaeker by Bojana Cvejic reveal the choreographic principles behind the pieces and give insight into De Keersmaeker's process. These conversations are illustrated with numerous primary source materials, including drawings, photographs, and documents related to productions of 'Drumming' and 'Rain'. A series of three DVDs contain extensive interviews and voice-over commentaries by De Keersmaeker and Cvejic, illustrated by demonstrations and excerpts of the performances, performed by an excellent cast of dancers from the ensemble Rosas. The Ictus ensemble provides the live performance of Reich’s spellbinding music. A third DVD presents an entire recording of Drumming (2012 revival) with optional voice-over commentary. With its unique multimedia presentation of these two canonical dance pieces, this volume is an essential resource on one of today's most prominent choreographers.
