Anne Teresa De KeersmaekerChoreographyThe six Brandenburg Concertos

'Like no other music, Bach's carries within itself movement and dance, managing to combine the greatest abstraction with a concrete, physical and, subsequently, even transcendental dimension.' Since the 80s, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker has continued to revisit Bach's Brandenburg Concertos. In his six concerti grossi, Bach deploys the instruments of the baroque orchestra in different, often audacious constellations. Against this backdrop, De Keersmaeker presents sixteen dancers of different Rosas generations. She adapts Bach's music as if it were a ready-made score for a dance piece, embodying Bach's polyphonic mastery. The concertos are played live by B'Rock. The violinist Amandine Beyer will conduct the orchestra.
