“I would like to bring to people something like happiness.” These are the words tenor saxophonist John Coltrane used to describe his interest in and the mystical power of religious music from the far east.
A Love Supreme is a quartet choreographed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Salva Sanchis in which four performers dance to the eponymous piece of music by John Coltrane, a highlight of twentieth-century jazz. In A Love Supreme, highly intuitive free expression emerges from blues-based, rather straightforward musical structures; the work is renowned for its exploration of the tension between tonal and rhythmical complexity and simplicity. This is translated literally in the dance: the choreographers bring together improvised and composed materials, interweaving and absorbing them into one another.
De Keersmaeker notes: “In non-Western music, composition and improvisation are not mutually distinct concepts. Indeed, improvisation is composition in the immediacy of the moment.” Together with a new cast of young performers, De Keersmaeker and Sanchis have reworked A Love Supreme into a full evening program.
