Dance is a way of seeing music; George Balanchine propounded that truth for decades. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker does it, too, in a contemporary mode; her nine appearances in the Next Wave Festival over the past three decades have been among the most sublime concert experiences available to New Yorkers, and her crafty way of bringing Beyoncé to heel was one of the best dance stories of the decade. Her Brussels-based troupe, Rosas, working collaboratively with its in-house musical ensemble, the Flemish group Ictus, brings us the American premiere of De Keersmaeker's 2013 Vortex Temporum, a work for seven dancers, each of them connected to a roving musician, whose movements interpret the sound-score — spectralist composer Gérard Grisey's 1996 piece of the same name — in complex ways.
