a glance into her meticulous methodology
Mitten follows the last rehearsal weeks of Mitten wir im Leben sind, a performance by the world-famous choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, her company Rosas and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, based on the six cello suites by Johann Sebastian Bach. The film shows her detailed style of working, building a choreographic universe based on studying the musical score.
De Keersmaeker received several prizes for her work. In 2001 she was given the title of nobility of baroness and in 2015 she received the Austrian Decoration for Science and Art.
