Flemish dance stuns at Tate Modern in London

Choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's performance of "Work/Travail/Arbeid" premiered in the Tate Modern in London last night.

In "Work/Travail/Arbeid" De Keersmaeker examines whether choreography can take the form of an exhibition. She reworked her 2013 performance "Vortex temporum" that was performed for nine weeks at the Wiels in Brussels.

Flemish art guru Chantal Pattyn: "It's one of the most fascinating things I’ve ever seen. It's so innovative. You notice that partitions are trashed: art becomes theatre, dance enters the museum. This performance created quite a stir."

After Brussels the show travelled to the Centre Pompidou in Paris and has now arrived at the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern in London. Next year the exhibition moves to the New York MoMa where performances are planned starting 25 March 2017.
