A Love Supreme - Salva Sanchis & Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker/Rosas

06/06/2018 - 10/06/2018

Improvisation is composition
In A Love Supreme, John Coltrane and his musicians start from a simple basic structure and then develop a completely free improvisation that constantly expands boundaries.In 2005, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, along with Salva Sanchis, created a quartet set to Coltrane’s musical composition. The striking thing about his jazz is the tension between complexity and simplicity. This is literally expressed in the dance, with improvisation and composition interweaving until they melt together. In 2017, De Keersmaeker and Sanchis adapted A Love Supreme with four young, male dancers. This exceptionally vital production was one of the highlights of last season, and was promptly selected for the TheaterFestival. Join the dancers, and abandon yourself once again to Coltrane’s spiritual ode to divine love!
