En Atendant / Cesena

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and her company Rosas return to Sadler’s Wells with two of their most recent works, En Atendant and Cesena. Cesena is a celebration of dawn, while En Atendant captures the merging of twilight into night.

Performed by eight dancers, three musicians and one singer, En Atendant is set to the Ars Subtilior - a complex form of 14th century medieval polyphony featuring dissonance and contrast. For Cesena the company worked closely with Björn Schmelzer and his graindelavoix music ensemble. The stage, with set by Ann Veronica Janssen, is shared by 19 dancers and singers, all of whom both sing and dance, exploring the limits of their abilities.


The dance company of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker who is one of the most important choreographers to have emerged in Europe in the past two decades.
