Fase, Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich

STUK with 30CC

You can also attend the afternoon performances (which are open for school groups). They take place on 27 and 28 February at 14:00.

Fase, Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich, choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s very first performance, premiered in 1982. Fase comprises three duets and one solo, choreographed to four repetitive compositions by the American minimalist Steve Reich. De Keersmaeker uses the structure of Reich’s music to develop an independent movement idiom that doesn’t merely illustrate the music but also adds a new dimension to it. Both the music and the dance start from the principle of phase shifting through tiny variations: movements that are initially perfectly synchronous gradually start slipping and sliding, resulting in an ingenious play of continuously changing forms and patterns.

As part of Body of Work, we present the version of 2018, when Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker passed on this performance she has always danced herself to two new dancers, for the first time in its long performance history.

STUK strives to provide a safe working environment for performers, employees and audiences. Read our response to the recent reporting about transgressive behaviour at Rosas.
