Transfigured Night in Brussels

Posted by Johannes Feigl on 02 September 2014

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s rendition of Arnold Schönberg’s Verklärte Nacht for string sextet will be performed at the Rosas Performance Space in Brussels on Friday, 5 September, by Samantha van Wissen, Boštjan Antončič and Nordine Benchorf to a recording by Pierre Boulez and the New York Philharmonic.

Further performances take place on 06., 07., 09., 10. and 11.09.2014.

From the introductory text on the website of Rosas:

The original choreography as a group piece was created in 1995 as a part of an Arnold Schönberg evening in the Brussels Opera House De Munt / La Monnaie. By rewriting the group piece as a duet, both the narrative and the musical aspect come to the foreground. Expressive crescendos and diminuendos guide us through dramatic events, echoing an ever-modulating stream of emotions. A shameless romantic love story, in the pale light of a transfigured night.
