Dance Performance DVD

DP01 Classic Dance Performances DVD - Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker - Keersmaeker Achterland - Dance Performance DVD - A brilliantly filmed version of Achterland, the stunning, adventurous dance work from the avant-garde Belgian choregrapher Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. Unlike many filmed dance pieces, Achterland is directed by De Keersmaeker herself, who brings a choreographer's talent to the camera, reflecting the work's structures and themes in highly developed cinematic form. The original cast was largely reassembled for the film; the piece was adapted to the new medium, with choreographic revisions appropiate to cinematic expression. When reviewing dance, it can, at times, be difficult to classify the choreography as ballet, modern ballet, modern dance, jazz. etc. In this case it is simple: this is pure modern dance. The term is difficult to define exactly, but if you see enough of it, you get the idea. This dance film is called Achterland, and is performed by the dance company, Rosas. The choreographer is Anne Teresa De Keersmacher. The dancing is very light hearted and a little comical, but very interesting, usuing all types of groupings, from solos to full ensemble. The music is quite noteworthy: Eugene Ysaye's unaccompanied violin sonatas and Gyorgy Ligeti's piano etudes. They are played onstage by Irvine Arditti(violin) and Rolf Hind(piano). There is some slight intereaction between the dancers and the musicians, which adds to the comical nature of the dancing. There are some routines involving women and their high heel shoes. They act kind of sexy walking around and also take them off and put them on. It's amusing. The dancing is done on a stage with no sets or background, other than the studio, itself. The dancers are wearing ordinary clothes. The camera is not a special feature as in a dance-for-camera film, but simply records the action. These factors give the film the look of a rehearsal documentary, but this is not a documentary. This aspect tends to cause the viewer to relax and focus on the choreography(perhaps it has the same effect on the dancers.). The sound quality is excellent.
