An illustrated and in-depth exploration of four of Rosas's early works, Fase, Rosas danst Rosas, Elena's Aria, and Bartók, through sketches, notes, and photographs

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is one of the most prominent choreographers in contemporary dance. Her 1982 debut with Fase immediately attracted the attention of the international dance scene; since then, De Keersmaeker and her company, Rosas, have created an impressive series of choreographic works that have been described as "pure writing with movement in time and space." This book explores four of Rosas’ early works, Fase, Rosas danst Rosas, Elena’s Aria, and Bartók, through sketches, notes in reviews, and photographs.

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is a contemporary dance choreographer. Bojana Cvejić is a performance theorist and maker, working in contemporary dance and performance as both a dramaturge and performer.
