Mitten wir im Leben sind / Bach 6 Cellosuiten

Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker
08/02/2018 09/02/2018
  • Duration: 120
  • Location : Salle de la Grande Main

Johann Sebastian Bach’s cello suites are regarded as being among the highlights of Western musical history. Their inventive architecture, dancing rhythm and timeless beauty still speak to us today. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s affinity with Bach has already been evident in numerous earlier productions including ‘Partita 2’, which was previously seen at the Ruhrtriennale. De Keersmaeker strives to find a choreographic signature which may grasp the essence of Bach’s musical vocabulary. In this production the six suites, performed by the world famous cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, are adapted, probed and danced in a choreographic work for three male and two female dancers including De Keersmaeker herself. The fascinating symbiosis of music and dance reveals not only the nature of each individual suite but also their interplay within the cycle as a whole.
