This project pays tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suites that are performed in their entirety by world-renowned cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras. The collaboration between Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Jean-Guihen Queyras was born out of a shared interest in musical analysis as a starting point for their interpretations. in this new production, Bach’s score is illuminated by a choreography for three male and two female dancers, including Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker herself. Both the individual character of the six suites and their interconnections emerge from this riveting symbiosis of music and dance.
