Creation 2024 (working title)

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Radouan Mriziga, Amandine Beyer / Rosas, A7LA5, Gli Incogniti

In Creation 2024, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Radouan Mriziga set out to explore Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. The starting point for this new choreographic work is the exquisite recording of Vivaldi’s composition by virtuosic violinist and long-time Rosas collaborator Amandine Beyer and
her ensemble Gli Incogniti.

The Four Seasons is one of the most well-known, iconic and reproduced pieces of music; a veritable ‘hit’ of the classical repertoire. It is also a striking ode to nature. By contemplating the nature of this musical composition not only inspires further explorations of patterns present in the natural world and celestial
configurations as possible starting points for choreography, it also vividly brings to the surface the urgency of the impending climate crisis. Do we still have four seasons? In addition, Vivaldi wrote this music three hundred years ago in the Mediterranean, a region at the intersection of different continents. The Four Seasons thus also invites reflection on the circulations of knowledge, power, and histories this region represents.

In Creation 2024, multiple strands come together to create a unique choreographic language. The piece aims to return to the core, the structure of Vivaldi’s famous composition and the many associations and emotions it evokes, while offering a choreographic counterpoint to it. At the same time the dance underscores that there may be something contemplative to be found in The Four Seasons, in its familiarity, and in the familiarity of nature.

Apart from this version using recorded music, a special live version of Creation 2024 will also be created.
