In his dance performance, Antoine Jully explores the entire field of geometric-architectural possibilities inherent in the composition with his language of movement. In doing so, he wants to transfer the ideas and approaches of Johann Sebastian Bach – with the greatest respect for his composition – into his own version, which will be especially dedicated to the rhythms laid out in the fugues. His musical partner will be the Oldenburg singer and vocal artist Gunnar Brandt-Sigurdsson, who plays with the tonal spectrum of Bach’s composition and has also made recordings with the Ventapane Quartet of the Oldenburg State Theater, as well as the Oldenburg cantor and organist of St. Lamberti Church, Tobias Götting.
