EN With red bridge project, three of Luxembourg’s major cultural institutions launch an innovative joint project building bridges, both geographically and artistically, between music, dance and the visual arts. At the heart of the project for the 2017/18 season is an artist who has been blending different art forms for decades: Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. The Belgian choreographer, who has a longstanding relationship with Luxembourg, is one of the greats in her field who, with her Rosas company, has revolutionised contemporary dance. red bridge project comprises six major productions offering a unique opportunity to discover the full scope of her creative work.

(La Nuit transfigurée)

EN Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) is based on Schoenberg’s late romantic music for strings and a poem by Richard Dehmel about a woman who, on a moonlit night in a forest, confesses to the man she loves that she is pregnant with someone else’s child. Expressive crescendos and diminuendos guide us through dramatic events, echoing an ever-modulating stream of emotions. For the first time, this 2014 version of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s interpretation of Schoenberg´s shamelessly romantic love story is presented with live orchestra.

EN Achterland is a seminal choreography in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s highly individual body of work. It was for this 1990 production that she first wrote specific dance material for men, adding three male dancers to her then predominantly female company. The dominant femininity and minimalism of several earlier Rosas pieces give way to an ambiguous no man’s land, playfully blurring boundaries and signs with dancers performing around a violinist and a pianist in the centre of the stage.

EN What would it mean for a choreography to be performed as an exhibition? In 2015, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker reimagined her piece Vortex Temporum, created in response to the polyphony of the eponymous masterpiece of Gérard Grisey, for the radically different temporal, spatial, and perceptual conditions of a museum environment. red bridge project presents Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s epoch-making work Work/Travail/Arbeid, previously shown at Wiels, Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, MoMA, for two days at Mudam.

EN This project pays tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suites that are performed in their entirety by world-renowned cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras. The collaboration between Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Jean-Guihen Queyras was born out of a shared interest in musical analysis as a starting point for their interpretations. In this new production, Bach’s score is illuminated by a choreography for three male and two female dancers, including Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker herself. Both the individual character of the six suites and their interconnections emerge from this riveting symbiosis of music and dance.

Steve Reich Violin Phase

EN red bridge project kicks off in Mudam’s Great Hall where Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker herself performs Violin Phase, one of the four parts of Fase, Four movements to the Music of Steve Reich, her very first choreography from 1982. The choreographer uses the repetitive structure of the music of Steve Reich, a pioneer of American minimalist music, to develop an independent movement idiom that does not merely illustrate the music but adds a new dimension to it.
