One of the most important figures in contemporary dance meets one of the greatest musicians and composers of all time. Twelve men and four women from three generations of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s company Rosas dance to Johann Sebastian Bach’s music. With this production, the Belgian choreographer and dancer is revisiting a composer who has been a constant source of inspiration to her since the 1980s. After hesitating to tackle Bach’s complex Brandenburg Concertos for almost four decades, she now finally feels ready. Following more intimate productions, she is again working with a strong ensemble and an extraordinary orchestra and she has succeeded in creating the perfect complement to the concertos: Her beguilingly simple choreography, which consists of such basic elements of movement as walking, turning and jumping, does not take away any of the music’s uniqueness. On the contrary, the dance actually brings the composition’s various facets into view. Although Bach certainly did not intend his Brandenburg Concertos to be danced to, De Keersmaeker proves that they should be.
