With Rain, Anne Teresa de Kersmaeker, a major figure on the choreographic scene, gives us a work of rare intensity and refined purity. The choreographer leads the dancers to transmit the rhythmic pulsations of Music for Eighteen Musicians, by Steve Reich, a quintessential work performed here by the Ensemble Ictus. On stage, music and dance sweep the performers along in a perpetual surge of movement, a dizzying and joyful race which seems to “overflow with life”. The performance will be featuring Étoiles, Premiers Danseurs and Corps de Ballet as dancers and instrumentalists Ensemble Ictus and Synergy Vocals.
Performances will be on October 21, 23, 25, 26, 28, 30, 31 and November 2, 3, 4, 6 ,7.
