Following The Six Brandenburg Concertos, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s dialogue with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach continues in a new solo show, which she dances herself. In the Goldberg Variations, belonging to the composer’s late period, a play of variations, canons, and fugues transform a simple and quiet melody into a musical cosmos of extraordinary variety. Together with the pianist Pavel Kolesnikov, the choreographer takes Bach’s score as the blueprint for a similar exercise: finding a form of dance in constant change. A new phase in De Keersmaeker’s ongoing search for her own choreographic idiom.
