Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suites are considered a milestone in the history of Western music. The title of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s choreography “Mitten Wir Im Leben Sind”, comes from the opening words of a Martin Luther chorale: “In the midst of life, we are in death.”
Placing acclaimed cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras at the center of the piece, contemporary dance luminary Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker builds on her choreographic language, developed in tune with Bach’s musical one, to capture an affinity between the music and five dancers, of which De Keersmaeker herself is one. In a feat of physical endurance, the suites are played in their entirety, making this a rare chance to hear all six together.
“Mitten Wir im Leben sind/Bach6Cellosuiten”, directed for TV by Corentin Leconte, was filmed in summer 2022 in a large movie studio in Brussels. A Production of Accentus Music in coproduction with NHK, SWR/Arte, Harmonia Mundi and Rosas.
