Drumming (1998) is returning to Kaaitheater! It’s one of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s most iconic choreographies, written to the eponymous, minimalistic percussion score by Steve Reich. For this series, the music is performed live with enthralling precision by the Ictus ensemble. The music starts with one single rhythmic motif, which subsequently multiplies and unfolds into a rich cornucopia of textures (drums, woodwinds, brass, voice…). Through minor tempo accelerations, the musicians almost imperceptibly push their unison out of joint, resulting in a never-ending volley of canons. The same thing happens in the dance: a single movement phrase serves as the foundation for an infinite number of variations across time and space. It is only when the music stops and the bodies come to a halt that you realize what you have witnessed: a wave of pure dance and pure sound, a vortex of vital energy. For this run of Drumming, the music is performed live by Ictus: don't let this unique opportunity pass you by.
‘This fusion of atomic precision and raw energy is one of the masterpieces of the late 20th century.’ – THE GUARDIAN
