Französische Suite choreography by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker brings a strong desire to fruition: to work with the music of J. S. Bach, on the various movements of a Suite - allemande, courante, sarabande, gavotte, bourrée, loure, gigue -, with breakdance moves for the latter. The leitmotiv in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's work is to match a certain formalism and the transmission of an emotion, "with all the unpredictable, anarchic and wild elements that may crop up", she says. "Emotion and structure play against each other, adapt, and finally complement one another."
