This little book was made during the last weeks of the creation process for Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s Mystery Sonatas / for Rosa.
Music and geometry have always been central to the work of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. In Mystery Sonatas / for Rosa, these interests form a bond through a symbol—the rose. With a long history of symbolism in art history and literature, the rose often represents secrecy and mystery. ‘Sub rosa’—Latin for ‘under the rose’—refers to ‘that which is not spoken’, but here we can consider this through the lens of ‘that which is danced’.
The book includes an interview with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, texts by Tessa Hall and Amandine Beyer, a selection of pictures by photographer Anne Van Aerschot, drawings by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and more.
