Rosas & Ictus: Vortex Temporum
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s influential Rosas company returns to Sadler’s Wells with the UK premiere of a new piece that celebrates the intricacies of Vortex Temporum, one of the last pieces from the late French composer Gérard Grisey.
Considered a pioneer of the spectral music genre, Grisey’s work shows a fascination with musical pattern and time. The music offers both a harmony typical of the spectral genre, based on the acoustic properties of sound, and a sense of circular and spiral motions – patterns often associated with performances by Rosas.
