Filmische Adaptation des gleichnamigen Bühnenstückes (Uraufführung 1990, Théâtre de La Monnaie, Brüssel) in Zusammenarbeit mit Herman Van Eyken.
"Achterland," written by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker:
"Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker's piece Achterland is an award-winning dance film featuring male and female dancers that clearly express the struggle for equality between men and women. The music includes Eight Studies for the Piano by Gyorgy Liegeti and Trois Sonates pour Violon Seul by Eugene Ysaye."
"Filmed onstage with de Keersmaeker behind the camera, viewers are given a great insight into what de Keersmaeker's true artistic vision is. The camera is guided to frame and stress certain aspects of her choreography. It is interestingly done so (i.e. focusing on random body parts) that the viewer is forced to focus on certain things that may not have caught attention otherwise. I was often left wondering if there were specific movements or body parts to focus on, but at times it just seemed like an artistic choice with no real motivation."
