Rosas danst Rosas

Thierry De Mey

Four dancers pulled up their t-shirts, balled up their fists and quickly stroked their hair, and these were movements from ‘Rosasdanst Rosas’, a choreography by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. The dancers lie on the floor. It looks as if they are sleeping. Are they merely moving in slow motion? What
is going to happen? Suddenly there is a surge of momentum. The arms and hands are moving under the influence of gravity and the slap on the ground looks like a thunderclap. We are instantly awake!
