Choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker adapts her 1982 performance for The Tanks at Tate Modern
Renowned choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker adapted her acclaimed 1982 performance, Fase: Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich for The Tanks at Tate Modern last month as part of the gallery's ongoing Tanks: Live programme.
Performed at the Tate by De Keersmaeker and Tale Dolven from July 18 to 20, the hour-long minimalist dance is considered to have launched Flanders' contemporary dance movement of the 1980s. In her choreography, De Keersmaeker explores 'the relationship between music and dance and aims to articulate the basic principles of the musical composition rather than allowing the dance to simply illustrate the music'.
The work includes Reich's compositions Piano Phase (1967), Come Out (1966), Violin Phase (1967) and Clapping Music (1972).
