Inspired by the classic comedy As You Like It & featuring excerpts from Brian Eno’s Another Green World, contemporary dance icon Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker replaces Shakespeare’s dialogue with dance.

Following one of her key choreographic principles, the dancers are challenged to embody the meaning behind the words, and through idiosyncratic movements express themselves with a rich, colourful and energetic palette. A gently ironic world is created full of masquerades and games of seduction, with themes of attraction, repulsion, misunderstanding and silliness, where language doesn’t need deciphering to be understood.

"The physical expressivity that the 11 dancers achieve is remarkable" New York Times
