“Bach’s musical oeuvre has always been a guiding light for me, from the very beginning of my career”—Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
Beginning next week, famed Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker explores the movement, dance, and transcendental dimension of J.S. Bach’s virtuosic, audacious, and imaginative Brandenburg concertos with the North American premiere of The Six Brandenburg Concertos. The evening-length work features 16 dancers of different generations from De Keersmaeker’s company Rosas in direct dialogue with musicians from the baroque ensemble B’Rock under the baton of Amandine Beyer in their North American debut. Don’t miss your chance to experience these sublime performances, which are sure to make audiences think about and feel Bach’s classic composition in an entirely new way.
