Coproduction De Munt/La Monnaie and Concertgebouw Brugge
Achterland is a seminal choreography in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s highly individual body of work. It was for this 1990 production that she first wrote specific dance material for men, adding three male dancers to her then predominantly female company. The dominant femininity and minimalism of several earlier Rosas pieces give way to an ambiguous no man’s land, playfully blurring boundaries and signs with dancers performing around a violinist and a pianist in the centre of the stage.
