DANCE – 45’ aprox

In 2009 the score used for Solo on Bach & Glenn (2008) by Albert Quesada was rewritten and passed on to 2 other dancers. They learned the movement score, created their own interpretation and performed it with the soundtrack over a period of 2 weeks in Brussels.

The duet Solos Bach & Gould offers two different views on a written score with the sound of Mr. Glenn Gould talking and playing.

Albert Quesada is a Spanish dancer and choreographer based between Barcelona and Brussels. He trained at MDT (Amsterdam) and PARTS (Brussels) after his studies of philosophy and multimedia engineering in Barcelona. The exploration and translation of musical structures and compositions into choreography and the invitation of an audience to perceive and to listen to the proposed works, stands at the heart of Quesada’s choreographic work. Next to that, Albert is intrigued by group movement and dynamics, sparkled by his collaboration with ZOO/Thomas Hauert.

Under the company name ACME, he holds many artistic projects, both educational and for the stage. This is together with his long term collaborators Marcus Baldemar, Federica Porello, Mireia de Querol, and Zoltán Vakulya. ACME’s new project will be a collaboration with the composer Octavi Rumbau for L’Auditori de Barcelona.
