Andersson Dance

Alae is a full-evening performance for a grand piano, a pianist and three dancers. Together, they tackle Beethoven’s magnificent piano music. The work illustrates the poetry of everyday life with the help of the choreographer’s fine-tuned expression and spatial dynamics. Playful meets heartfelt when these brilliant stage artists come together with live music on stage. 88 keys and 3 dancers together create a room full of possibility.

The performance is an artistic meeting between Örjan Andersson, one of Sweden’s leading choreographers, and the New York-based Beethoven-interpreter Per Tengstrand, one of Sweden’s most successful musicians on the international concert scene.

Örjan Andersson has run his eponymous company Andersson Dance for more than 20 years, a company that has toured with Dancenet Sweden no less than five times – most recently with the critically-acclaimed Goldberg Variations – ternary patterns for insomnia. Now, Andersson Dance has created a new work, using three of Beethoven’s sonatos as a springboard, and is heading out on the road again in collaboration with Dancenet Sweden.
