From one series to another
Vertical dance to the sound of the cello
Rebecca pool : Dance
Bruno Coxt : cello

On the cello sound, Rebekka Gather will play weightlessness in a system with the peculiarity of reversing surfaces: the wall becomes the ground, the horizontal becomes the vertical and vice versa. In a redesigned dance space, other perspectives of gaze, bodies and fantasies emerge. Gravity seems modified, time is on hold, bodies are flying away and looking for anchorage in a substance that doesn’t attract them as the Earth irreparably does… The dialogue between dance and music is reinvented.

JS Bach: The Goldberg Variations

night party

Maud Graton : Harpsichord
When Bruno asked me to play Goldberg Variations for JS Bach for 12th Academy, my heart ached with excitement… mixed with awe! I’ve long since fallen off this undisputed pinnacle of Bach’s formidable keyboard output. How do we counter these fireworks, this debauchery in ingenuity, this sensitivity steeped in humility, this splendid architecture about the pure force of gravity.
The exact title given by Bach is Aria with some variations for a manual harpsichord. The Thirty Variations revolve around a theme, a pacifist from the second Clavierbüchlein ballad that Bach composed for his wife Anna Magdalena. They use it as a bassaglia: bass is reproduced only in variations, which gradually open more and more complex spaces. A variety of writing techniques (canonical, fugue) are blended with a variety of dance styles.
Bach humbly declared that he “made it up for amateurs for the amusement of their minds.” The differences end with a return to the song, but it is no longer the same piece: this ‘goodbye’ is transformed by previous wonderful transformations, giving way to final reflection, or a return to the desire for simplicity. the original.
Thank you to Bruno for this first opportunity to travel with this masterpiece. MG
