Drumming © Herman Sorgeloos


this fusion of atomic precision and raw energy is one of the masterpieces of the late 20th century

Drumming (1998) is one of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s most iconic choreographies, accompanied by Steve Reich’s minimalistic percussion score of the same name. The music starts with a single rhythmic motif, which subsequently multiplies and unfolds into a never-ending volley of canons. The choreographic complexity of the dance was devised in a similar fashion: a single movement phrase serves as the foundation for an infinite number of variations across time and space. When the music stops and the bodies come to a halt, the audience realises what it has witnessed: a wave of pure dance and pure sound, a vortex of vital energy.

All performances of Drumming from October 14 up to and including October 22 must unfortunately be cancelled. All affected ticket holders will be contacted as soon as possible.
