A leading light in contemporary dance, Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker returns to Sadler’s Wells with her company Rosas to present the UK premiere of The Song.

The Song is about a world that is rushing in on itself, moving at an ever faster tempo. At the heart of this whirlwind of change stands the human body, at the eye of the storm.

Created in collaboration with visual artists Ann Veronica Janssens and Michel Francois, The Song is performed by ten dancers – nine men and one woman – on an empty stage, which has been stripped to the essentials of light, sound and movement. This arid landscape gives life to new possibilities of movement, with the performers creating constantly shifting patterns; a combination of mathematical precision and human inventiveness.

Theatregoers younger than five will not be admitted to Rosas – The Song.
