With Rain, Anne Teresa de Kersmaeker, a major figure on the choreographic scene,gives us a work of rare intensity and refined purity. The choreographer leads the dancers to transmit the rhythmic pulsations of Music for Eighteen Musicians, by Steve Reich, a quintessential work performed here by the Ensemble Ictus. On stage, music and dance sweep the performers along in a perpetual surge of movement, a dizzying and joyful race which seems to “overflow with life”.
