One of the most important creators of contemporary dance, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker returns to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus to present EXIT ABOVE, her new work that has been praised by critics at all major European festivals (Avignon, Vienna, Rome).

A choreography to live music for thirteen performers, where walking, an act familiar to us all, meets the blues. The work illuminates how the blues builds community and a sense of togetherness in a demanding choreography that gradually engulfs the stage with its explosive energy.

De Keersmaeker brings together in this work the wizard of sound Jean-Marie Aerts, the captivating performance of Meskerem Mees, an up-and-coming Flemish singer-songwriter of Ethiopian origin, and the guitarist Carlos Garbin.
