'For me, Bach's music embodies movement and dance like no other music', according to Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. The Six Brandenburg Concertos are an ambitious undertaking. As with Vortex Temporum - the festival's opening performance in 2014 - she is approaching the music as a score for the choreography, making this performance embody Bach's polyphonic mastery. From this simplicity a compelling whole comes into being. Violinist Amandine Beyer will conduct the baroque ensemble B'Rock that is performing the concerts live. Against this backdrop, De Keersmaeker sets sixteen dancers from various Rosas generations - the largest ensemble she has ever worked with.
