Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke

Rosas/Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Michaël Pomero & Chryssi Dimitriou

With The Song of the Life and Death of the Cornet, Christoph Rilke, Rainer Maria Rilke wrote a sensuous fever dream that inhabits the space between prose and poetry, song and story, man and woman, love and death. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker approaches Rilke’s poetic prose as a musical score. ‘How can you embody language? Dance a story? How can breathing, one of the most elementary patterns of movement, develop into choreography? What happens when you confront the logic of a text with an autonomous logic of movement? Take, for example, Noh-theatre: movement underlines, accentuates or illustrates a story, and yet it maintains its own logic and its own beauty – independent of text or story. In Rilke’s Cornet, I wanted to explore the subtle nuances between breathing, speaking and singing, between male and female, the lyrical and the prosaic.’
