UK PREMIERE 

The Cello Suites of Johann Sebastian Bach, while now considered a landmark in the history of music, were almost lost to it, until they were rediscovered in a second-hand shop.

Placing the world-renowned cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras at the centre 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 the 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 live.
