With her latest creation April Me, Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker marks a return to the very essence of her work and that very special relationship she maintains between music and dance.
For the twentieth anniversary of her company, Rosas, she again joins forces with composer (and regular collaborator) Thierry de Mey.
The film focuses mainly on that highly sophisticated process involving the dialectical exchange between the creative ideas of choreographer and composer, the give-and-take between composition, musical material and dance.
It is the very first film to penetrate the creative universe of the choreographer, following the elaborative phases of the piece, those special moments when experimentation is the impetus for creation.
