Choreographed by Örjan Andersson, this reading of Goldberg Variations, (full name ternary patterns for insomnia) captures the various moods of the music – slow and fast, light and meditative, extroverted and introverted – and resists the separation between musicians and dancers by asking the musicians occasionally to lay down their instruments and join in the dancing.
The aim is to achieve a complete marriage of sound and movement, thereby unlocking yet another dimension of Goldberg Variations, a work whose seemingly endless layers have been unpeeled by so many interpreters over the years, and continue to be so.
The Scottish Ensemble/Andersson Dance's take on Bach’s Goldberg Variations is an original, intriguing and enticing proposition.
