Goldberg Variations--ternary patterns for insomnia
(Bach, Sitkovetsky/Andersson)

"An original, playful, and subtly quite brave performance"--The Herald of Scotland
 
Art forms merge and surge with sublime synergy as five performers from Stockholm-based Andersson Dance and 11 musicians from Glasgow-based Scottish Ensemble become true partners, interacting onstage in a seamless display of talent. Johann Sebastian Bach's sparkling masterpiece comes to stunning life through a whirlwind of movement and sound in this entrancing collaboration.
 
Goldberg Variations is not only one of the most well-known and celebrated pieces of music ever created--it's also one of the most widely interpreted. Bach originally composed it for a patron suffering from sleepless nights, and this thrilling new production serves to re-awaken all of the music's tremendous joy and beauty through breathtaking dance. Revel in Bach's everlasting classic as these two acclaimed companies from Europe make their Kennedy Center debuts, adding a unique, lively spin to the work and exploring it anew!
