Schedule for "Rain" ballet to music by Steve Reich. Choreography by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker 2020

An international icon of the contemporary dance scene, Flemish choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker will be presenting one of her great masterpieces. Created in 2001, set to the driving music of Steve Reich and now part of the repertoire of the Ballet de l’Opéra de Paris, Rain delivers the quintessence of her choreographic genius and musical intelligence. It features infinite variations of vivid motifs repeated over and over, mathematical forms of rosettes taking shape in a space transformed into a playground. Her 10 dancers trace the incessant movement of life on a stage awash in soft light. The giant rope curtain hanging in a semicircle at the back of the stage reinforces the image of an animated landscape that their powerful yet quite natural dance conveys, an image emerging from tension and release, dizzying acceleration and sudden stops. An electrifying, hypnotic piece. Exhilarating.

Rain, set to Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians (1976), is one of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s most characteristic performances. With this vibrant choreography, De Keersmaeker returned, in 2001, to two of her great loves: pure dance and the minimalistic music of Steve Reich. Accompanied by the pulsating tones of his music, for an hour and ten minutes ten dancers occupy the stage, delineated by a curtain of fine strings, displaying an impressive succession of virtuoso dance phrases. The mathematical figures, the sustained repetition, the geometric occupation of the space, the art of continuous variation – everything that had gradually become the choreographer’s signature was pushed to the extreme in Rain.

In Rain, De Keersmaeker approaches the company of dancers as a close-knit group of pronounced individuals who, one by one, play a vital role in the whole. Seven women and three men allow themselves to be propelled by an unstoppable joined energy that binds them together. It's a bustling network in which breath and speed is shared as well as that special comradery that forms when you are beyond fatigue.
