music - Season 15/16
Choreographer Laurent Chétouane tackles an iconic work: Bach’s St John Passion. He is not interested in a perfect execution of the music and doesn’t allow his dancers to ‘portray’ the Passion. Will Bach still move you without the security of a set choreography, trained singers and only seven instruments? What happens when Bach’s music is desecrated?
Antigone is the personification of resistance. In this new solo by Etienne Guilloteau her role is danced by the Argentine Cecilia Lisa Eliceche. She appears together with four musicians playing electric guitars, the Belgian-Dutch quartet Zwerm.
The Lichtenberg Figures by the Austrian composer Eva Reiter is a series of seven songs and six instrumental interludes, preceded by a prologue. The music develops in line with the collection of unconventional sonnets of the same name by the American Ben Lerner.
Performer Ivo Dimchev gives one of his famed live concerts in the Kaaistudio’s. By detaching 15 original songs from their performance, they transform into independent, individual opuses.
You can experience it once again in the intimacy of Kaaistudio’s: Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, played by Alain Franco; 96 short compositions, each with an individual character, its own dynamics and an individual time sequence.
