Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Boris Charmatz & Amandine Beyer: Partitia 2 description
What happens when two choreographers, famed for directing large groups of performers, rejoice in their love for their own dancing? In a repertoire of over 40 works, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker - an icon of contemporary dance - has never composed a duet in which she would dancer herself. In Partitia 2, a collaboration between herself and French choreographr and dancer Boris Charmatz, De Keersmaeker departs from her usual meticulous construction of dance, embracing the improvisatory instincts and whimsical flair of Charmatz. The piece is named for it's score from JS Bach, the structure and form of which De Keersmaeker reflects in this new choreography. Bach's composition is performed by Violinist Amandine Beyer, whose physical presence on stage lends the dance a sense of humility and intimacy, enhancing Michel Francois bare and beautiful set design in this exciting new collaboration from two of the most exciting names working in dance today.
