Beyoncé dances Rosas

You got to give it to her, Beyoncé hasn’t been shy about showing off her baby bump ever since she announced her pregnancy. That bump gets full on attention in her cinematic new video for Countdown, directed by Adria Petty. After an opening sequence referring to Audrey Hepburn, the clip is jam-packed with copy-cat dance acts taken from movies such as Flashdance and Bey’s very own Dreamgirls.
Clocking at 2.32 minutes in we spot a sequence of Rosas Danst Rosas and Achterland by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s contemporary dance company Rosas. The Belgian choreographer says to be completely taken by surprise as she was unaware and no authorization was given. She is considering taking legal steps for breach of copyright. A fairytale with a nasty ending, maybe. Judge for yourself, comparison below.
