The Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 © Anne Van Aerschot


The deeper I’ve managed to penetrate the structure of his music, the more Bach’s absolute genius has revealed itself to me.

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.
