Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
A love supreme re-creation
within the frame of SÉQUENCE DANSE PARIS festival
A Love Supreme by John Colatrane was choreographed in 2005 for four dancers by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Salva Sanchis. In this instrumental suite, one of the most pure masterpieces of 20th century jazz resonates with a particular tension between the complex and the refined. With a new distribution of dancers, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Salva Sanchis rework A Love Supreme by extending it into a format for an entire evening. The result: a greatly powerful performance where the dancers abandon themselves completely to a Coltrane spirituality, and with him they compose a hymn to divine love.
