Mitten wir im Leben sind. Bach6Cellosuiten

Rosas / Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker & Jean-Guihen Queyras

Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suites are considered a milestone in Western music history. Their ingenious architecture, dancing rhythms and timeless beauty continue to speak to us today. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's affinity with Bach is apparent in numerous previous performances. She continues to pursue a choreographic scripture that captures the essence of Bach’s musical language. During this production the six suites, performed by the world-renowned cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, are explored, challenged, and danced through a choreography for three male and two female dancers, including De Keersmaeker herself. This riveting symbiosis of music and dance reveals both the individual character of each suite and their interconnections in the totality of the cycle.
