Il Cimento dell’Armonia e dell’Inventione

“Do we still have four seasons?”, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker wonders in view of the current changes in climate. Together with her Moroccan co-choreographer Radouan Mriziga, she bases her reflections on this subject of radical change on Antonio Vivaldi’s violin concertos The Four Seasons. The cycle is the first in a collection of a total of twelve concertos published by Vivaldi in 1725 under the title Il Cimento dell’Armonia e dell’Inventione (“The Contest between Harmony and Invention”). The short-sighted industrial societies have left living in harmony with nature to what they condescendingly call “primitive peoples” and plunged headlong into an immoderation of inventions. The dancers of De Keersmaeker’s company Rosas react to the widely known consequences by plunging themselves in turn into Vivaldi’s virtuoso soundscapes, masterfully played by Amandine Beyer and her ensemble Gli Incogniti. The result is an emotive work in a unique choreographic language.
