The start of the day

For Cesena, the 2011creation, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Rosas will be collaborating with Björn Schmelzer and his Graindelavoix ensemble. This new production might almost be called the counterpart to its predecessor, En Atendant. Whereas in that piece the twilight merged almost imperceptibly into night, this piece heralds the start of the day. The stage is shared by 19 dancers and singers who explore the limits of their ability. Dancers sing and singers dance, once again in dialogue with the wilful 14th-century scores of the Ars Subtilior. Ann Veronica Janssens will for the third time provide a stage setting in colour and light, a sculpture of passing time, of the constant transformation of what is around us and of what only becomes visible in the course of time. The start of a new day, or a new look at a distant past.
