Sadler's Sampled: Rosas & Ictus Drumming

Sadler's Sampled: Rosas & Ictus Drumming

At Sadler's Wells

A pioneer of minimalist music, Steve Reich’s work has been a catalyst throughout De Keersmaeker’s career ever since she created Fase (1982), her debut as a choreographer. Since then his distinctive style has formed the basis of numerous works by De Keersmaeker including Rain. Composed by Reich in 1970, Drumming is based on a single rhythmic motif which multiplies, develops and accelerates into an endless interplay of canons. This powerful score is brought to life with breathtaking precision as contemporary music ensemble Ictus perform live on stage, whilst 13 dancers move to the beat in this energetic and skilfully choreographed piece. As part of Sadler’s Sampled, audiences can enjoy this truly live spectacle where no two performances are ever the same.
