Anne Terese De Keersmaeker, Jean-Guihen Queyras / Rosas

Considered a milestone in the history of western music, the intellectual and architectural elements in Bach's Cello Suites continue to evoke contemporary appeal, with their rhythmic vitality and melodic intricacy. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's affinity with Bach was already apparent in several previous creations where she captured the essence of Bach's musical language. Bach's score performed in its totality by the world-renowned cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, is faceted, challenged, and performed through a choreography for three male and two female dancers, De Keersmaeker herself being one of them. Both the individual character of the six Suites and their mutual interconnections emerge from this riveting symbiosis of music and dance.
