Bach, Paxton, Buena Vista Social Club & Sade revisited

In Powered by Emotion the Swedish choreographer and theoretician Mårten Spångberg reconstructs the Goldberg Variations, the fantastic dance improvisations by the American dance legend Steve Paxton, and several songs from the Buena Vista Social Club. Paxton himself said, Spångberg’s piece actually stands alone, more than being a reconstruction of anything particular. Can one reconstruct an improvisation? This question is not so interesting as the result of Spångberg’s ‘translation process’ itself. In the second part Spångberg and ‘Aisikl, sound designer Peter Lenaerts’ group, perform songs from Sade, followed by a cooking session and ‘aftertalk’ with Mårten Spångberg and Berno Odo Polzer.
